My goodness! They sure have it in for the Javelin throwers. 83.50 for mens 'A' and 62.00 for Womens 'A" 83.50 was good enough for 4th in London. Insanity!

However,the women shot put standard are goes down in last few years,before 2007 the A standard is 18.55m,B 17.30m is obviously low,let alone current 17.20m which is far from getting final mark,even if it is not a popular event in most of countries.

How's this for depressing - the window opened in March and some usually strong Ami men's events are looking pretty anemic!

(# A)
LJ - 2!
DT - 0!
Dec - 2!

It is up now, but much later:

IAAF wrote:1 October 2012 to 29 July 2013.

Isn't that a change from before, when it included most of the previous year?

The Olympics have always had a longer qualifying window than Worlds and some events like the 10k and decathlon typically have a longer qualifying window.

Oct 1 the year before is when the window opened up for the 2011 World Champs as well.

mmmmm, pretty sure that both OG and WC were for many years the two meets were in sync. Daegu, as I recall, was a sea change in shortening WC period.

The A standard would have earned silver in the LJ and bronze in the HJ in London. However, 13 men made the LJ mark in 2012, and 24 made the HJ, so I guess these standards are about right.

The tightening of the men's 5000 standards to 13:15/13:20 is a further nail in the coffin of European distance running.

The only Europeans to run under 13:15 in 2012 were Farah, Hassan Hirt (FRA) and Arne Gabius (GER).

And Hirt tested positive during the Olympics.

I wouldn't say it's all doom and gloom though. Chris Thompson and Tom Farrell were within 0.4 of a second (!) of running 13:15 this summer and there are normally a few Spaniards operating at this sort of level. Ibrahimov, while not European-born, also ran sub-13:15 too.

The 'A' standard in the hammer of 79m would have won bronze in London too. If I was a jumper or thrower, I'd feel quite demoralised by some of these standards. Not only are they stupidly tough compared to some of the cushy track event standards, getting just one A standard isn't always enough for selection (GB) and some federations don't necessarily pick those with the B standard either.
