    I'm guessing they were taking the wondrous Road To Doha site as being an official IAAF list. Only going to show how much they dropped the ball in not having a similar info page of their own! (they = IAAF)
    This is from the IAAF provisional entry list. There are 5 runners who have 3:41+ personal/seasonal bests.

    The provisional entry lists do not clear up a lot of the issues, because they include the reserves (Grice, for example) and entries in impossible doubles (Hassan & Koko), plus some known withdrawals (G Dibaba, J Wambui).

    I really wish Seyni were in the 400.

    Rotich and Garrido are wild cards, since both are area champions. Dzholomanov and Wol are the only male entrants for their countries. And there must be some special rule for the refugee team (they have 5 male and 1 female athlete, none of whom has the standard).

    And I certainly hope this event will be a step forward for the women of Qatar. The 2 ladies entered are in the 60 and 70 seconds territory for the 400 and 400h. But more exposure to women’s athletics may help a little bit. Just a little bit. I hope...

    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?

    Apparently the IAAF is using cheap tricks to keep the numbers down: There's 31 entries for the men's discus, but four of them are American and all four count towards the total number. But only three of those four are allowed to compete since the USA does not have a wild card for the discus, one is obviously "in reserve". I found the same thing in other events too. 100m men, USA has five entered, Jamaica four. 200m: GBR four, Jamaica four, USA five and so on. There could be 50-100 entries wasted (but counted) because of this and as many who did not get an invite.

    or she was tested and failed would seem an equally viable explanation
