Oregon World Championships Tracking

Cover image of Natalie Rule by Fred Etter

To be eligible for selection to this year’s World Championships in Oregon (15-24 July), athletes need to either reach a qualifying standard, or accumulate a high enough World Athletics Ranking.

The World Athletics Rankings are complex, but in essence reward the quality of performance and the placing achieved, in competitions of different standards. We’ll update the table below on a fortnightly basis, and add commentary and insights along the way.

For athletes that won’t reach the qualifying standards, the best point scoring opportunities will come at the upcoming Oceania Championships (7-12 June in Mackay). At the same time, there are a considerable number of point scoring meets in Europe that will see many international athletes rack up points before the cut-off date of 26 June.

Up to three eligible athletes can be selected in each event.

We last updated this article just before the Australian Championships, so there’s a lot of movements below. Here’s some highlights:

  • Qualifying performances from Cedric Dubler (Decathlon), Jacinta Beecher (200m), Jessica Hull (5000m), Rose Davies (5000m and 10000m) and Natalie Rule (5000m);
  • Point improvements from athletes who took out national titles. Generally, this has increased an athlete’s ranking, unless offset by:
  • International competitors establishing and/or improving their rankings as the international athletics season gets into swing.
  • Removal of the 2019 Oceania Championships from World Athletics’s ranking calculations during April (the most recent edition of the area championship always counts for rankings). Where an athlete’s ranking score has dropped, that’s usually the reason.
  • Selection of the Australian team for the 2022 Oceania Championships. Australian athletes who aren’t part of this team generally have a real uphill battle to secure enough ranking points to obtain a quota position.
  • Announcement of initial selections for the Commonwealth Games. For some athletes where doubling at the world championships a fortnight prior isn’t practical (e.g. marathoners Liam Adams and Sinead Diver) that’s essentially an indication that they won’t be selected for the world championships.
  • Announcement of the Australian Junior team for the World U20 Championships. This takes place one week after the World Championships.

Stop Press!

Abbey Caldwell has taken out the 1500m at the USATF Distance Classic in a time of 4:04.18, bettering the qualifying standard for the World Championships. The national champion is now in a very strong position for selection in the world championships and Commonwealth Games. We’ll add the qualifying performance to the table below when we next update in a fortnight.


  • On the road to Oregon (and beyond)

    2022 is a unique year in athletics, with the World Championships and Commonwealth Games both taking place. We caught up with Athletics Australia General Manager of High Performance, Andrew Faichney, to ask where Australia’s athletes will focus their attention.

Note that there are also other athletes within the Australian team for this event, who aren’t listed below due to not being in contention for world championship selection based on their current ranking. We’ll have a preview of the Championships closer to the event.
