    For a 5000m/10000m/marathon triple, Radcliffe (14:29:11, 30:01:09, 2:15:15) seems to have the highest total (3752).

    Thanks for pointing this out. There are a few things that make this different from the Cincy incident.

    So Dix and Spearmon should be on the 200m team, right?

    You have a perfect solution. Just pick three active athletes with the best PBs. Problem solved... only for people like yourself.

    I think some people here are counting Jebet as a "Kenyan." I cannot think of any Kenyan other than Kiyeng who is a shoo-in for a medal. Coburn is currently ranked #3 behind those two.

    Felix in 200 and Martinez in 800 deserve to be on that list more than most people you listed there.

    Even Ryan Hill (7th last year, World Indoor Silver) had a better shot than someone like Symmonds.

    They show all the 16 semifinalists on the screen, instead of "key qualifiers."
    That alone is a huge difference.

    If he had followed her example, and drunk some beetroot juice, he might have made the team. Too bad he is more interested in his "blue collar" persona than running fast.

    Those time qualifiers are important in mid-d races so that runners have at least some incentive to push the pace. Otherwise, you would see 400m sprint races in open lanes after 1100m warm-up jogging...
