Below is a list of Washington affiliated athletes who have achieved qualifying marks for the 2016 US Olympic Track & Field Trials in Eugene, Oregon starting July 1-10, 2016.
Washington affiliated athletes are those who attended high school, college or graduate school in the state of Washington, while professionals are those currently training in the state.
This list will be updated monthly, and hopefully more frequently as we get closer to the Trials. This list does not include the walks.
All qualifiers achieved their marks after May 1, 2015. Athletes have until June 26th to qualify for the US Olympic Track & Field Trials.
Any new additions since the last list was published on April 17th are indicated in red. Athletes added since the last list was published include Bernard Lagat (m10000), Justine Fedronic (w800), Angela Whyte (w100 hurdles) and Izaic Yorks (m1500).
For complete details on the US Olympic Track & Field Trials qualifying procedures, please visit usatf.org.
One addition to this list is the addition of foreign athletes with Washington ties who have achieved the Olympic A standard. Depending on what country they represent, they may be selected by their federation to compete at the Olympics, or may have to compete in qualifying trials selection meets.
As always, corrections, additions, etc., are welcome.
