While initially 34 athletes were selected for the SEA Games using ‘The Transparent Scaled System’.

Hence data from pinoyathletics.info was provided to aide with the selection process. Also a further two athletes were added on appeal to the taskforce. While 34 was a generous raise by the POC Taskforce from the 24 slots given to athletics in 2013. Also Its becoming evident there is a lot of growth in the sport of athletics in terms of medal potential.

Hence an analytical write up and the rest of the selection methodologies will follow.


The Selection was as follows

1. Athletes who had exceeded the Gold, Silver and Bronze standards in the December 2013 to March 2015 period

3. The remaining slots went to the athletes who were closest to the bronze medal standard based on IAAF Points difference from 2013 Bronze and performance in the December 2013 to March 2015 qualifying Period. Until all the remaining slots were all taken.
