Well my season came to an end today! Excellent season; looking forward to next year! Now my vacation starts!!

MENs DISCUS


Okay, in the USA, does the performance qualifying standard trump the top-32 qualifying standard?

For example–in the men's discus, the US champion, Jared Schuurmans (66,10m), has hit the performance standard of 65,00m so he's in.

The 2nd (Russ Winger 64,34m) and 3rd (Andrew Evans 63,91m) placers do not have the performance standard (no headwinds today at NACAC) BUT they are both in the top-32 on the world list (32nd is 63,34m) so they qualify for the Worlds according to the IAAF.

Both 4th placer Rodney Brown (65,04m) and 7th placer Chase Madison (65,42m) have the performance standard.

Does Winger's NACAC win move him ahead of Madison as the Area Champion?

Who should go?
Who will go?
Is it written in USATF bylaws that performance trumps top-32?

add: Our Throwholics reporter on site at NACAC says Winger is on the WC team. (video interview)

-- Evans does not have mark, he wrote me,
"I will be chasing the mark in Chicago on the 10th and 11th. If I don't hit the mark there, I have meets at Tucson, Chula Vista and NACAC's where I can continue to chase."

July 22 "He was close today!! Sam Crouser threw another lifetime best 81.31/266' 9" at Concordia Throws Center. Almost! He needs 82m/269' and will get another shot next week. Thank you to EVERYONE who took the time to stop by - it made a big difference! Also thanks to Doug Bowman and all the USATF officials who made it all possible - you guys are the greatest. Big thumbs up to Oregon Duck Cody Danielson who PRd 3 times and ended the day at 75.90! Another crack at it next Thursday!"
