There still a few gaps where no one has even an IAAF 'B' standard though:
Of course, we have a few athletes with a single 'B' standard or qualifying performances outside the UKA period. This could change but I would expect UKA to nominate anyone in reasonable form who has a qualifying mark providing no one else meets the criteria.
Reference has been made to the TOPS statement about us not having athletes in a wide range of events. Without checking I do believe they always said this was based on current performanes (last year, 2011) and was not a prediction of how athletes might improve. As to the reason for the obvious improvement that is open to debate and there are probably many factors. I suspect, though, it is mainly about wanting to be part of a home Olympics that has driven many athletes to train harder and focus more on qualifying. We need similar incentives every year!
Can we cover all events?
Besides this I think UKA also wanted fianlists in 50% of events (correct me if I am wrong). Is this achievable? Then we have to win 8 medals including one gold which should be easy shouldn't it?
