Athletics: Qualification Period for Marathons and Men’s 50km Walk has Ended

The rosters for the marathons and men’s 50km walk have been decided. Unlike the other individual events, the cut-off to qualify ended a month earlier on May 31st 2021. Athletes can qualify to the games (maximum three per event) by outperforming the entry standard (2:11:30 for men’s marathon, 2:29:30 for women’s marathon and 3:50:00 for men’s 50km walk), reach a top position at a designated competition or by the world rankings to complete the entry number.

In both the marathons, the entry number was 80, but a higher number of eligible athletes reached the entry standard. Therefore 110 men and 100 women are currently expected to compete at the games. World Athletics has confirmed they will not forcibly reduce the quotas. In the men’s 50km walk, 38/60 positions will be filled by the entry standard while the remaining 22 will qualify through the world rankings.

Athletes could still qualify to these events through universality places, reserved for nations which failed to qualify in any men’s or women’s event. As for the remaining individual events, athletes can still achieve the entry standard or approve their world ranking until June 29th 2021.
