  • Members who have no male and/or female qualified athletes whom they wish to enter may enter one unqualified male athlete and/or one unqualified female athlete in one event of the Championships (except the Combined Events).

The Technical Delegates will make the final decision and, to do so, may seek the opinion of the relevant Area Association.
  • Entries for unqualified athletes must be submitted by 31 May 2011. If another athlete then achives the entry standard before the end of the qualification period, it will be possible to change the entry accordingly.
