    Does anyone know any recent status on Bednarek? He looked really good in Des Moines until the injury. With recovering from the hamstring problem and saying on Twitter that he was done, his readiness to compete at a high level is a big question.

    or 2 spots for fast 400 hurdlers, which was the original question being posed.

    The IAAF did it by event.

    That rule applies only to the entries. Once the team is entered, the country can use any four athletes in the relay, as long as they are entered in any event in the Championships. They could go with all throwers in the first round if they wanted to. Of course, nobody will do that. But the point is that all sprinters, hurdlers, multis people, 800 runners, etc. are available to run the relays--they don't have to be among the athletes entered in the relay.

    It just means the country can't add 6 additional athletes besides the 4 in the respective individual events. Anyone entered in the meet can actually run in the relay event.

    In theory, does that also mean that athletes like Felix, Igbokwe, Okolo, Gillespie etc. could be used on any relay since they are now entered in the meet?

    do you mean can they compete in a relay other than the one or which they were named? Good question.

    Yup. So Felix and Okolo are only named for the women's 4x4, but I could realistically see them running in the mixed relay as well (heats or final). But is that allowed since they are not in the meet in an individual event?

    Isn't the winner of the IAAF hammer challenge awarded a wild card for WC? I thought that, with DeAnna Price winning, Ewen would be given an entry.

    Yes, Hammer Throw Challengw leader gets wildcard. From the IAAF Rules pdf.

    3. By Wild Card as:
    • Reigning World Outdoor Champion
    • Winner of the 2019 IAAF Diamond League
    • Leader (as at closing date of the qualification period):

    • IAAF Hammer Throw Challenge
    • IAAF Race Walk Challenge
    • IAAF Combined Events Challenge

    If both are from the same country, only one of the two athletes can be entered with this Wild Card. If a Member Federation has four athletes in one event as a result of this regulation, all four will be permitted to compete.
    I don't think Berry did win the 2019 challenge. She seems to be third, behind Zheng Wang and Anita Włodarczyk, according to the IAAF: https://www.iaaf.org/competitions/ia...ngs/2019/women.
