    1500 is a restricted event. If she wants to move up, she'd need to go all the way to the 5000, if we're talking championship events.

    I don't believe they're really doing it on purpose. More likely they're just haven't figured out how to go through the whole process effectively. As I noted above, some events have number well below...

    Interestingly, Bahrain has had some female stars (albeit mostly imported). Is there really such a major difference in social attitudes between the two neighboring countries?

    McCarthy vs McCartney isn't even a question of spelling, they're two wholly different names. You could just as well start throwing the book at people for pointing out Seyni is from Niger, not Nigeria.

    Technically true, but wouldn't they need to be entered by the Russian federation anyway? Or do neutral athletes compete as individuals, and therefore need to enter themselves?

    I don't have actual data. But I don't think that many countries send any government people to the WC (as opposed to, say, the federation chair who serves as the team manager).
