For both events, SAA will use the Priority Tier System* for the final selection of the athletes who are keen to compete in the above meets. Please see website for the write up of the PTS (http://www.singaporeathletics.org.sg/selection-criteria…)
*For Jrs athletes selection, we will use the 2014 Asian Jrs Championship qualifying mark since the 2 meets are after the 2012 Asian Jrs championship. (Will post the qualifying mark after the completion of the championship)
