Article source:

The track and field governing body IAAF announced on Wednesday the Qualifying standards for the 2015 IAAF World Championship in Beijing, China.


There is a new system introduced by through which "IAAF has established the ideal number of athletes (and relay teams) to start in each event of the championships and shall ensure that such ideal numbers are met through a qualification system which, essentially, combines entry standards (only one standard) and invitations based on rankings."

There are several different ways athletes can qualify for the 2015 Beijing world championships; A) By achieving the entry standard, B) by a finish at specific championships or competitions , C) by being the defending champion in Diamond league series - in case there are two athletes from the same country, only one will be selected through this rule, D) the remaining spots will be filled by the top ranked athletes in certain events.

The qualifying period opened on Jan. 1 for 10,000-meter run, marathon, race walk, relays and combined events. All other events opened up on Oct. 1. The deadline to hit these standards is Aug. 10, 2015.
