    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 doubt whether the Russian federation would be entering them when they are suspended from the IAAF and they will not be representing Russia. There must be some kind of arrangement. I don't know if this represents all the Russian athletes who are cleared to compete internationally who have met the general qualifying criteria and are fit or otherwise (subject to a limit of 3 in any one event.)

    It would appear that at least earlier today the IAAF was not done inviting athletes. Yesterday German high jumper Christina Honsel was informed that no invite for her would be coming and DLV finalised the German team. Today Honsel got the invite after all (it was accepted).

    Concerning Simiyu and Kibet

    "Mutwii said they are still waiting for a response from Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) regarding the fate of the 5,000m duo of Michael Kibet and Daniel Simiyu, saying there is a possibility of having them replaced with no response from AIU".

    And even that usually isn't a problem, as it's common for some first round heats to have one or more empty lanes. Worst case, add one more heat for the extra athletes and redistribute a few of the rest to even out the numbers in each heat.

    NZ team for WC 2019 finalised

    This also formally confirms Nketia's loyalty to NZ rather than AUS.


    In the interview Nick gave after winning the 5th AVE Mile, he said he was #43 on the list of 45 top times (to get in) and thought he should get in. I wonder what happened.

    Because he doesn't understand that the lists are an approximation, not science. I don't know how often i already explained this to people. What happened is, the IAAF invited a few athletes from smaller countries, changing the numbers. Or the IAAF decided not to invite the full target number. There are factors we know nothing about, hence "approximation".

    That was on their website last week and was in the front page headline section last Wednesday, the 11th.
