Does anyone know what the commonwealth qualifying time for the English, Scottish and Welsh 10,000 metre event is? Just wondered what the standard will be like.

I did read somewhere that the times were as follows:

Men 10000M:
A - 27:49:00
B - 28:06:00

Woman 10000M:
A - 31:45:00
B - 32:17:00

But, I am not sure if these were the standards for the Athens Olympics in 2004.

I'm not 100% sure why, but I think the B level is for countries who don't have athletes capable of reaching the A level.

For example, as a country you may be able to send 3 athletes to each race. If you have no athletes capable of reaching the A level, but you have an athlete(s) capable of reaching the B level, then you can send one athlete who qualifies at the B level.

If you have multiple athletes capable of reaching the A level then you can send a full squad of 3 athletes for this event.

I think this is how I remember it being explained to me anyway!
