*Men’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 women’s distance event (according to All-Athletics.com) along with the 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 men here. Where there was an athlete listed who obviously won’t be in that event (Shannon Rowbury 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: 2:03.00; Olympic standard: 2:01.00; Approximate Field Size: 32)

If you don’t get the auto of 2:03.00, there is little chance you are getting in the women’s 800 as 53 people already have the Trials auto.

1,500m (Trials Auto: 4:09.50; Olympic standard: 4:06.00; Approximate Field Size: 30)

When scratches are done, it’s unlikely there will be 30 people with the auto standard of 4:09.50, let’s hope USATF fills the field.

We’ve complained about the field size for this event for 4+ years, however. They should have more than 30 people in the 1500 at the Olympic Trials (or get rid of a round). At the Trials, they are going to run 3 rounds of 1500 but only let in 30 people. That makes no sense. So the first round will be an utter waste of time as they’ll take it from 30 people down to 24.

This is another event where it looks like there won’t be 24 auto qualifiers. Let’s hope USATF fills the field.
