Only 15 women are listed as qualified, accepted and declared for the women's steeplechase at this weekend's USA Track & Field Championships in Eugene, OR. A steeple semi-final on June 25 is required by USATF rule 166 IF "more than 18 report" for competition. Since just 15 qualified, it is reasonable to assume that this will be a final-only competition.
