Alas, Australia is a long way behind the UK in this particular area. The UK (via A.A.A.) has had standards in place for all its events for some time now and acknowledges with badges any athletes who better the respective standards. We have nothing comparable in Australia. See below for details of the UK scheme - something we would do well to emulate.
