    I suppose it's possible that the Federation could withdraw their entries, leaving the athletes SOL. Why would they do that? They might be thinking that if the podium prospects can all pay their own...

    Those are never set this far in advance. They're usually set right before the Technical Meeting, which in Doha will be held on the day before the start of competition, and announced then.
