Similar to the men, only three U.S. women have the Olympic Standard in the javelin. Last year there were big marks by both Kara Winger (formerly Patterson) and Brittany Borman (66.47m and 64.75m respectively). Newcomer to the list is Maggie Malone from Texas A&M, she hit the Olympic Standard on her fifth throw at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

Pending that no new athletes hit the Olympic Standard at the Olympic Trials (qualifying or finals) then Winger, Borman, and Malone will make the Olympic Team regardless of their position/mark at the Olympic Trials.

IF a new athlete(s) hits the Olympic Standard at the Trials then the top 3 placers at Trials WITH the Olympic Standard will make the Olympic Team.

Who to watch

Be sure to look out for Hannah Carson at the Olympic Trials. She is entered in both the javelin and the discus. She has the Olympic Standard in the discus (61.97m) but is just short of it in the javelin (61.20m). Will she try and double? Or focus on one event?
