British/UK Qualifying Standards

These are published qualification times for selection to major international events. Selection is to represent the nation internationally in these invitation-only championships. Times must be recorded at appropriate races under international rules. Everyone is eligible to attempt to qualify. Up to three athletes who reach the A standard can normally be selected to represent a nation in each disipline. If no athlete meets the A standard, selectors have discretion to send one athlete who meets a lower standard. Each nation sets their own qualification standards, which can vary greatly by nation and by the level of event.
