Athletics Australia can advise that the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) have decided to extend the qualification period to 8 July, in line with the IAAF Olympic Games qualification pathway.
This extension date will only apply to athletes who are currently registered members of the Athletics Australia shadow team, which can be found here.
Dallas O’Brien, CEO of Athletics Australia, said: “Aligning with the IAAF date now takes into consideration meets such as those in Madrid, Heusden and the Gold Coast, which we believe to be on the radar of some of our shadow athletes.
“Hopefully this decision by the AOC will allow our athletes that one final opportunity to gain their required standards.”
