Το Συμβούλιο της IAAF ενέκρινε το σύστημα προετοιμασίας και τα πρότυπα εισόδου για τους Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες του 2020 στο Τόκιο και τα χρονοδιαγράμματα για τρεις εκδηλώσεις της παγκόσμιας σειράς αθλημάτων που θα πραγματοποιηθούν το 2020, κατά τη σημερινή συνάντησή του στη Ντόχα.

Κατά την πρώτη σύνοδο της διήμερης συνάντησης, ο HE Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad al-Thani υποδέχθηκε το Συμβούλιο IAAF στη Ντόχα, το οποίο θα φιλοξενήσει το Παγκόσμιο Πρωτάθλημα Αθλητισμού του IAAF από τις 27 έως τις 6 Οκτωβρίου του τρέχοντος έτους.

Ο πρόεδρος της τοπικής οργανωτικής επιτροπής, Sheikh Joaan, τόνισε τη δέσμευσή του να διοργανώσει ένα παγκόσμιο πρωτάθλημα αθλητισμού στη Ντόχα αργότερα αυτό το έτος. Επανέλαβε επίσης το έργο που έχει αναλάβει η Οργανωτική Επιτροπή της Ντόχα 2019 για να θέσει σε εφαρμογή τα επιχειρησιακά σχέδια και να προετοιμαστεί για το Ασιατικό Πρωτάθλημα Αθλητισμού τον Απρίλιο, το οποίο θα είναι μια δοκιμαστική εκδήλωση για το Παγκόσμιο Πρωτάθλημα.

Σύμφωνα με τις αποφάσεις που έλαβε θα ισχύσει διπλός τρόπος  πρόκρισης για την Ολυμπιάδα. Το υψηλό όριο που είναι αρκετά δύσκολο να επιτευχθεί  από μεγάλο αριθμό αθλητών –τριών, και το σύστημα κατάταξης (ranking) με βάσει το οποίο θα συμπληρωθούν οι υπόλοιπες θέσεις πρόκρισης  που καθορίστηκαν  ανά αγώνισμα.

Με βάση τις εκτιμήσεις των ειδικών , αναμένεται ότι η κατανομή των θέσεων με τις δύο  προϋποθέσεις πρόκρισης θα κυμανθεί στο 50%, λαμβάνοντας πάντα υπόψη ότι η κάθε χώρα θα εκπροσωπηθεί με μέγιστο αριθμό τριών(3) αθλητών –τριών.

Τα όρια στα περισσότερα αγωνίσματα θα πρέπει να επιτευχθούν την περίοδο 01.05.2019 – 29.06.2020 εκτός των αγωνισμάτων του Μαραθωνίου, Βάδην, 10.000μ. και συνθέτων που ισχύουν από 01.01.2019.

Στις σκυταλοδρομίες  θα προκριθούν 16 ομάδες  , η 8αδα του Παγκοσμίου του 2019 και οι οκτώ(8) καλύτερες επιδόσεις.

Τα υψηλά όρια που έθεσε η Παγκόσμια Ομοσπονδία και οι θέσεις πρόκρισης ανά αγώνισμα έχουν ως ακολούθως:
