Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Standards

At last consideration performance times, distances and scores have been agreed by the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association (“IOMCGA”).  After much consideration the Commonwealth Games Association withdrew the plan to impose standards for some events leaving these ones IMPOSED by the IOMCGA!

The athletics standards for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games are as follows:

3.13.50 4 x 400m Relay 3.33.50 2.21.00 Marathon 2.40.00

Achieving the standards does not guarantee selection onto the Isle of Man team, but will serve as a useful guide to both the IOMAA and the IOMCGA section committee that an athlete might be considered for selection.

  • Eligibility to compete for the Isle of Man at the Commonwealth Games based on the current Commonwealth Games rules:

an athlete must have been resident on the island for 5 years prior to the Games
or
must have been born on the island
or
athlete’s mother or father was born on the island

  • The standard must be achieved within the “selection window” which for athletics commences on 1st April 2016.
  • Greater weight will be given to an athlete achieving standards nearer the date of the Games, as an indication of current form and fitness.
  • The standard should be achieved at least twice during the “selection window” for events up to 1500m and field events. Endurance and multi events once, plus a supporting performance to confirm fitness in either a shorter event or applicable events in the case of multi events.
  • All qualified athletes will need to satisfy IOMAA of their fitness at time of nomination to IOMCGA by a performance in the 2017 season – ideally as near to that date as possible.
  • The standard should be achieved in high level competition (National UK Championships or international events will be given greater consideration).
  • All timings, wind speed and distance measurements should be validated by UKA qualified officials preferably using electronic measuring devices.borobi_signature_pose_-_thumbs_up_rgb
  • Athletes working towards Gold Coast selection should register their intention with the IOMAA and Head of Performance at the earliest opportunity (mail@iomaa.info).
  • Athletes will need to maintain a good level of communication with the IOMAA and the Head of Performance so that their progress can be monitored.
