    Wow, wonderful to see these posted so early!

    Note that the 2020 NCAA championships (June 10-13) will be contested after the closing date for qualifying (June 7).

    oh my! that's going to have a significant effect on collegiate qualifiers methinks, although I would guess that if this will screw with the basic setting of the standards they'll end up adding more people from performance lists than anticipated.

    Which we're good with, as many collegians crawl out of the woodwork when they get to the NCAAs, some of which could make the USA team. I'd hate to think that these late-bloomers are shut out of the Trials because of poor timing.

    Most of the track standards have been made more difficult, with a few staying the same.

    I suppose this is to maintain some parallel with the more difficult auto standards for the Olympics themselves, but the reality is that it will just lead to more of the fields being filled from the lists.

    There are a few field standards that have been made a bit easier than those for the '16 Trials: men's HJ, LJ, JT. A grudging concession to the decline in performances in those events.

    On the other hand, the qualifying period for events (other than 10,000, walks and combined events) is May 1, 2019! That's considerably earlier than has generally been the case.

    The opening date for the 10k, RW, Dec/Hept) is Jan. 1, 2019.

    The mens Javelin performances have declined since 2016?

    Speaking of American performances and comparing top ten from '16 to top tens for '18-'19, I'd said yes.
