    So to sum up: If you are not in the top two at the trials and you don't have the standard, you have to be a medal contender in Doha or Tokyo to be selected. Somehow not having the standard and being a medal contender seem to rule each other out.

    Probably - but in the one event theyíve accepted an invite either Sawyers or Ugen are potential (not necessarily likely) medalists either this year or next. This reflects the womenís LJ standard being really quite close to where the minor medals are likely to be (1cm behind third in the DL final) plus the performances of those two athletes in previous years with Ugen having the WL last year but dubious championship record and Sawyers tending to set SB/PB in major competitions.

    The menís LJ feels similar where only a slight improvement on the standard could get a medal.

    It is different to the other events where Britain have refused invites. For instance, Athletes setting PBs this season at 56.04 (400mh) or 8:29.37 (SC) arenít realistic medalists this year or next.

    (Iíd still accept the invites but think the policy has been applied properly)

    You may have a point about the 8:29 steeplechaser, but it's not unrealistic or unprecedented for a 56-second 400m hurdler to improve by 2 or 3 seconds in a season, which puts them into medal contender territory.

    When Dalilah Muhammad finished college in 2012, her PB was 56.04. In 2013 she became the 400mh silver medalist at the WC.

    If you think really hard, you can probably find the flaw in this (and i don't mean the missing N). ;-)
