Others that may improve include

Yes, P.B.s are important to look at to see if an athlete is capable of making the standards. For example, anyone looking at David Gillick's S.B. from 2011 might think he's a no-hoper, but of course, we know that he is well-capable of running the A-standard.
Dodge, feel free to edit my table whenever you wish to include any info. or athletes you think should be on the list. Just click on quote and you should be able to edit the table.
Just a note on Ben Reynolds, he doesn't compete for Ireland. He is from Northern Ireland and choses to compete for G.B. so no point putting him onto the list. Also, Michelle Carey is now concentrating on the 400m flat in order to bolster her chances of competing in the relay at the Olympics.
