“The JAAA wishes to advise that the rules governing entries for the Championships allow for the naming of an Alternate athlete for an event in addition to the Athletes named for that event on the team. An Alternate can be used to replace an athlete named to the team within the time allowed by the rules in the event that it becomes necessary for such a replacement. The JAAA has therefore named the following athletes as alternates."
