The full qualification system and entry standards for the IAAF World Championships London 2017 have been published.
The qualification system combines entry standards and invitations based on performance lists. As was the case for the 2015 IAAF World Championships and Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the IAAF has established a target number of athletes for each discipline (apart from the 10,000m, marathon and race walks).
There are still some special qualification opportunities and it will still be possible for member federations without any qualified athletes to be represented with one unqualified athlete (subject to certain conditions).
