    finally - no mile conversion to the 1500 - it was always too easy that way.

    Someone says this every year. Yes, the mile still converts to 1500. It is an automatic conversion so it doesn't need to be set out in the standards.

    that's disappointing - prepare for the rankings to be dominated, yet again, by mile times run in Boston or Washington.

    Only 18 U23 women ran faster than the 800m qualifying time in Canada outdoors last year in Canada. Hmmm, pretty tough standard if you ask me

    For an equivalent event standard shown above, you must hit the standard or go faster in order for the conversion to even be applied to your off distance event. For the mile, since it is so similar to the 1500, the conversion is automatically applied to all those who run the event, not just those who hit the standard. At least I think that's how it works.

    Every single male qualifier last year in the top 12 was ranked with a converted mile time except one.

    That's why it's an auto-qualifer standard, because it's not supposed to be easy. If it were easy to qualify for USports Track Champs, it would be called USports Indoor XC Champs.

    Maybe take one more look at the rankings. Last year only 5 of the top 12 and only 11 of the top 50 times were converted from the mile.

    I will admit that some years the rankings are much more heavily tilted towards miles, but this is not because the conversion is significantly unfair. It is due to the fact that almost all of the best meets (as well as the fastest tracks) are in the US... where they run the mile...

    Well the teams who happen to have access to those meets happen to be better, and would dominate the rankings anyways.

    Not sure what you mean by 'teams who happen to have access to those meets'. Do you mean the teams who pursue them and sign up to go? What is stopping anyone from going to these meets.
