These standards are the benchmarks that athletes must exceed if they want to automatically qualify and compete in the biennial championship.

The men’s 100m is set at a flat 10.00 s, while the women’s is 11.08 s. For the men’s 200m, it’s 20.16s, while the women’s 200m is 22.60s.

In the 400 m, athletes must run or exceed 45.00 and 51.00 for the male and female categories. And the 400mH have been set at 48.70s and 54.90s.

World record holder (WR) in the 100m hurdles, Tobi Amusan will find it easy to run 12.78s, even though she has already qualified as reigning world champion.

In the field events, meanwhile, Ruth Usoro and other jumpers will have their sights set on jumping the men’s 6.85m and 8.25m. That Brume has already qualified via his Commonwealth Games winning jump record of 7.00m.

The shot put also has high standards at 21.40m and 18.80m, while the discus is 67.00m and 64.20m.

The relays will have the top 12 countries from the World Relays, plus four other countries from the main list.

Other means of qualification are through being continental champions and through top roster ranking.

Here is the full list of input standards.
