Either the USATF or the IAAF has it wrong. And given the choice between those two, I will always play the percentages and assume that the the folks here in Indianapolis have it wrong.
If my guess is right, then Sean Furey, the javelin thrower out of Dartmouth College, will be competing at the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, South Korea.
Of course, you can see here on the initial Team USA roster, Furey is not included. USA Track & Field has not posted any kind of followup that would indicate that Furey would be competing in Daegu nor does he appear on its current roster.
But today the IAAF released its entries and Furey is listed in the javelin throw with his season-best mark of 81.62 meters (267-9), which just misses the ‘A’ standard. Go here and check it out, he is listed on both the U.S. roster and the javelin event list.
Unless Sean himself wants to email us with an update, we’ll have to wait for the event on Sept. 1.
