Season’s Best 2016:
Based on the quota given by the organiser (on a meet by meet basis), SAA will send any Singaporean athlete who meets the Senior, Junior and Youth qualifying mark.
If the quota is not met based on the number of athletes selected and confirmed, any Singaporean Athlete who is 5% or less from the Senior qualifying mark, will also be nominated. All such athletes will be ranked and the cut off will be the quota number invited.
For other athletes who are 6-10% off the Senior qualifying mark and are keen to compete, SAA will, on a case by case basis endorse the athlete to be part of the team but the athlete will have to bear the full costs of the air ticket and room and board stipulated by the organiser. Upon achieving the qualifying mark, SAA will reimburse the full amount to the athlete.
When only 2 Athletes per country are allowed to be entered per event and if more than 2 athletes meet the qualifying marks, the top 2 ranked athletes within the qualifying window period will be nominated.
All SAA sanctioned competition results will be considered for nomination.
SAA reserves the right to drop any qualified Athlete if the Athlete is deemed unfit to perform at a competitive level.
