Athletes invited by IAAF to Beijing 2015


The IAAF has invited three additional athletes  as part of the new qualification system introduced for Beijing 2015.

The IAAF has set a target number of athletes to compete in each event of the Championships and in those events where the number of athletes qualified by standard (or by finishing position in a given competition or by wild card) plus the unqualified athletes (only representative of a given country) is not sufficient to reach the target, the IAAF then extended an invitation to the next best ranked athletes in the qualification period until the target number is reached.

An invitation is extended to the following athletes from South Africa:

1.            Dumisane HLASELO                         1500m                  CGA

3.            Tumisang MONNATLALA              3000m SC             CGA
