Turns out, 11th place wasn't so bad for javelin thrower Sean Furey.

The 11th-place finisher at U.S. Track and Field Trials will be heading to Rio, because he was one of only three throwers in the final who had the Olympic standard.

Fourth-place finisher Sam Crouser is also going, as is the winner, Cyrus Hostetler, whose throw of 273 feet, 1 inch, was good for the title.

Normally, the top three finishers in an event would qualify. But since second-place Curtis Thompson and third-place Riley Dolezal hadn't thrown the Olympic standard of 272 feet 3 inches this year, they are not eligible to go.
