The IAAF has released the entry standards for the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Doha, Qatar, which will take place September 28 through October 6, 2019.
For the 10,000m, race walks, relays and combined events, the qualifying period spans from March 7, 2018 to September 6, 2019. For all other events, the qualifying window is September 7, 2018 to September 6, 2019.
The IAAF initially intended to implement its "World Rankings" criteria for the first time for the 2019 season, which would've likely made the qualifying standards much more difficult than in the past as the governing body sought to incentivize athletes to compete at events that would affect their ranking. However, after much bewilderment and head-scratching from the athletics community on the proposed system, the IAAF announced on November 11 that it would return to the traditional qualification system for the upcoming season.
