The 2017 USATF Outdoor Championships begin next week in Sacramento, where America’s best runners, jumpers and throwers will compete for spots at this summer’s IAAF World Championships in London. USATF picks the team based on the results at Worlds and the qualifying standards set by the IAAF. The top three finishers from USAs who achieve the qualifying standard by the end of the qualification period (July 23) will qualify for London. So that means if an athlete finishes in the top three but does not have the standard, he or she has four weeks to chase the standard. If the athlete has still not achieved it by the end of the day on July 23, the athlete’s spot passes to the next-highest finisher at USAs who has the standard.

Below, we’ve listed every U.S. athlete with the standard in the mid-d and distance events as of June 13, 2017. Also note that any reigning area champion (for the U.S. that means the NACAC champion) is considered to have achieved the standard and that a top-15 finish at World XC counts as the standard in the 10,000.

Here is how everything stacks up by event.

Event Men Women
800 11 14
1500 8 13
Steeple 8 10
5000 9 10
10,000 6 23

10,000: January 1, 2016 – July 23, 2017

Correction: Soratos’ mile time is not fast enough to qualify.

Men’s 3,000 steeplechase (8:32.00)

Of note in this event: two of the U.S.’s three 2016 Olympians — Donn Cabral and Olympic silver medalist Evan Jager — do not yet have the standard. The good news is that the steeple is rarely super-tactical at USAs: only once in the past 37 years has the winner failed to break 8:32. To finish in the top three in Sacramento, chances are you’ll have to run faster than 8:32. Plus, even if they don’t get it at USAs, they will easily get it somewhere else.

Men’s 10,000 (27:45.00)

This is the distance event that features the lowest number of U.S. athletes with the standard: just six men. Considering the winning time at USAs has been faster than 27:45 just twice in the last 12 years, it’s likely that Team USA in London will consist of three of the six guys below.
