The Chilean marathon runner Hugo Catrileowho this weekend had achieved a place at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games after running in Houston, denounced this Wednesday on its social networks that World Athletics changed the classification criteria and He excluded him from the rings’ date.

As Catrileo explained in a statement on Instagram, there were two criteria to qualify for Paris 2024: By score or achieving a time of 2 hours, 8 minutes and 10 seconds.

Despite having the score, finally ran out of space, given that World Athletics established the “university classification” criterion, who awarded a place in the Games to 11 runners of nationalities who had failed to meet the time or point requirements.

“It’s unusual…World Athletics prefers to take athletes who have never even run a marathon“Lamented Catrileo.

The Chilean is currently in 82nd position out of 80 runners qualified for Paris 2024 and will be able to go to the Olympic Games if two runners withdraw from the competition. The final list will be released on May 12.
