The system for seeding is about as clear as mud, too. And will anyone get moved up when, inevitably, a few scratch after Saturday's 3k?
Baffling, but not surprising. Was it clear during the qualification period that this would be the case? "Hey, here's how you can qualify to the national championships, but not be eligible to win a national championship".
I don't believe it's true. The start lists show the event as a two-section final. Nothing about the B section not being eligible for the US team.
