    USA and GBR both entered four athletes, if the IAAF would stop counting those alternates, Willis would be in.

    On the Road to Doha list, I see only three USA and three GBR athletes listed. And Willis is still at the top of the wait list.

    Love to see Willis get in. Hopefully, he didn't mentally check out for the season and start eating cake!

    Re: Salwa Eid Naser
    Following the day's conversation, I did some research and found this https://www.opalapaaraka.com/meet-me which I hope will close the debate about her father. IMO, the "Bahraini father" story was invented to to give a legal veneer to a transfer of allegiance that took place when she was not 18 yet (assuming her official date of birth is correct)

    The "Road to Doha" is not associated with the IAAF. The IAAF provisional entries list has all four Americans and four Brits, with no way to distinguish reserves.

    But I have to believe that when they are figuring out how many invites they have to do in order to meet the target for each event, they are taking into account the fact that only three of the four entered can actually compete.

    From the article linked to the front page about "Lack of Irish TV from Doha"...

    "Mark English has missed out on a spot in the 800m under the new quota qualifying system, his 1:45.94 just shy of the automatic 1:45:80. He was ranked 41st of the 48 entries, only for eight places to go to countries permitted to send one athlete without any standard (Oman, UAE, East Timor, Myanmar, Kosovo, Jordan, Equatorial Guinea and Andorra)"

    If that were the case, Nick Willis would be in. Our list is different from the IAAF because it still has Endale and Paulson with a q, but i doubt Ethiopia will accept an invite because they could have done so before the provisional lists were out. But i can't remove him because they restarted the process and we don't know for certain.
