    South Korea enters one male High jumper, without name or result. What happens next? The IAAF just accepts the entry? Do they check if South Korea actually has a jumper with a valid result? They...

    But it still makes no sense. The deadline to enter athletes for Doha is tomorrow. They can't enter ALL the athletes on the start list for the trials, there's 11 guys entered for the 800m for example,...

    The flaw in that is: The IAAF will know how many athletes qualified, but without the entries from federations they won't know many will be entered. If you don't know how many are entered, you won't...
