All-America Selection Procedure
From 1921-1986, All-America certificates were given to the top-six finishers in each event at the NCAA Championships. In 1987, an amendment was added that included one additional American for every foreign-born athlete in the top-six. In 1994, the number of All-Americans was expanded to include the top eight finishers, and one additional American for every foreign-born athlete in the top eight.
