*Women’s Descending Order List

The 2016 US Olympic Track and Field Trials are just over two weeks away, starting on July 1st in Eugene, Oregon. With that in mind, we decided to take a look at where things stand with the qualifying lists.

For many, just making it into the Trials is a career accomplishment, so those runners will regularly be checking their place on the US descending order list over the next two weeks. Additionally, there are several big names who haven’t hit the automatic qualifying time in their event and could be left watching the Trials from home. As always, USATF have left themselves open to making arbitrary controversial decisions by listing “approximate field sizes” and not promising to fill the fields. Hopefully the 2016 entry process is a smooth one, but sadly it almost never is.

Below we give you the top qualifying marks in each men’s distance event (according to All-Athletics.com) along with automatic mark, “approximate” field size and the Olympic qualifying standard (the qualifying window opened May 1, 2015). Athletes who have the Olympic standard (so can go to Rio if they are top 3) are bolded. We have done the same for the women here. Where there was an athlete listed who obviously won’t be in that event (Matthew Centrowitz in the 800 for example), we crossed out there name, so each runner has a more accurate “Trials Rank”. USATF lists the standards and qualifying procedures for each event here.

800m (Trials Auto: 1:46.00; Olympic standard: 1:45.80; Approximate Field Size: 32)

This is an event where there will not be 30 auto qualifiers. Let’s hope USATF fills the field.

1,500m (Trials Auto: 3:38.00; Olympic standard: 3:36.20; Approximate Field Size: 30)

This is an event where it’s unlikely there will be 30 auto qualifiers. Let’s hope USATF fills the field. Personally we think they should fill it to at least 36 entrants as otherwise the first round will take us from 30 to 24 entrants.
