Athletics Canada would like to re-affirm the established process for Olympic team nomination for all athletes, including the marathon and 50km race walk.
As per the published Athletics Canada Olympic Games selection criteria (see here), the team will be nominated to the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) following the Canadian Track & Field Championships and Selection Trials in Edmonton July 7 to 10. Accordingly, no nominations have been made to date. The nominations are made by the National Team Committee.
On July 11 the team will be officially announced in conjunction with the COC at City Hall in Edmonton.
