Qualification standards for the IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 have been published.
Once again, the qualification system will combine a set of entry standards and invitations based on performance lists.
The field events --high jump, pole vault, long jump, triple jump and shot put-- will be held as straight finals. Twelve athletes will start in the vertical jumps and 16 in the horizontal jumps and shot put. Entries will be determined by a combination of entry standard and ranking. Twelve athletes will also be invited to compete in the heptathlon and pentathlon.
The qualification period for all disciplines except the combined events began on 1 January 2017 and will run through midnight (Monaco time) on 19 February 2018.
