It’s starting to get late into the evening. Almost an hour has passed since the first heat, and the Quarter finals are 90 minutes away. The 200 meters have been going on all day starting with the women’s group from oldest to youngest. The only group remaining is the M35-39 age group.
When you have over 81 entrants, 4 qualifying rounds are required by the IAAF. With 89 declared competitors, we had 12 heats where the top 3 places and 4 fastest times (i.e. “3P4T”) advanced to the Quarter-Final round of 40 athletes.
