    Why does the USATF set such unrealistic auto qualifiers. With the discus (64.50) the same as the olympics and the shot qual (20.60) about 30cm more than the standard olympic qualifier?

    Is it an ego thing or do they have different calculations to other parts of the world. I know that the US have great shot putters but come on. If there were more than 12 thrrowing over 20.30 or 62.50m Then they deserve to go to the final.

    Shot gets a ton of coverage because we have the 3-4 best guys in the world...NBC isnt going to go out of their way to show disc guys throwing 207' in prelims. Honestly I don't blame them.

    Things would be different if there were 3-4 guys throwing 70m. I guess the lesson to be learned here is that you need to make your own breaks.
