Russia and Belarus are not allowed to participate, individual athletes are allowed if they have not expressed support for Russia's invasion of Ukraine

That really was awful.


The US Trials in some ways puts us at a disadvantage
The reigning World Champions in women's shot put and Hammer Throw will not be on the team because they fouled all of their preliminary throws. Many counties would have just given them a spot.
