Best Answer

In order to qualify to run the 100 meter dash in the Olympics and represent the United States, a sprinter must qualify to run in the U.S. Olympic trials which means you have to run a qualifying time in order to be eligible to participate in the trials. The qualifying time must be a result of an electric timer (accutrack time) no hand held times are allowed for qualification for this event. Then you have to place in the top three in the finals of the 100 in the trials in order to quaify to represent the U.S. in the 100 meters in the Olympics.
