Advancement to Finals

The 60m dash and 60m hurdles events will have qualifying rounds. Since seeding is difficult this early in the indoor season, the fastest times will qualify for the finals, without respect to place. .

All other track events will be run in sections. Events run in sections will be seeded by submitted times, with the fastest competitors seeded into latter sections.

In the horizontal jumps and throws, the 8 competitors with the longest efforts will advance to the finals
