I believe Tatiana Gousin also has the entry standard but I am not sure if she will compete as she is injured.

Also add to the list the most recent standard entries:

Christos Frantzeskakis (Hammer Throw)
Irini Vasiliou (400m)
Stamatia Skarveli (Hammer Throw)

Also read that Kostas Baniotis (High Jump) got a wild card entry.

I have a feeling both Kyriakopoulou and Belibasaki will not make the trip to Doha, as the athletes have not recovered from their injuries.

The entry standard is 1.94 for women's high jump and she only has a seasons best of 1.88. 
Doesn't Greece normally get two wild card spots? I was hoping Spanoudaki gets in.

I don't believe Belibasaki is injured. I think she is the athlete that was caught using banned substance. 

Gousin cleared 1.94 indoors, which I believe counts. However she got injured recently so I don't know if she will compete in Doha.

I have heard she had an Achilles injury, not torn, but a pulled one. If that is the case, it's a great shame. I was wondering why she couldn't medal in the 100 and 200 meters, but can in the 400?

It is confirmed that Tatiana Gousin will not be able to participate in Doha as her knee has not fully healed. She will be good to go starting next season in 2020.

Spanoudaki received a wild card entry for Doha from IAAF.

Baniotis is tied at 32nd position which gives a ticket to Doha, but he shares this position with 3 others. He hopes that few athletes will drop out before the September 17 deadline.

Same thing goes for Anagnostopoulou, who hopes that some body ahead of her will drop out.

How do athletes drop out of the competition? If they earn the spot, why not go to the World Championship?

Most common cause are injuries. Also some countries willingly limit the number of athletes they send to competitions.

If I read this correctly,  Anagnostopoulou will get the second wild card because a Brazilian discus thrower is suspended for possible doping offense.

I believe IAAF is done with the wild cards. In high jump they decided to limit the athletes who cleared 2.28 meters even though that does not fill out all the 32 spots for the event.

Same for women's discus throw. Even though after athletes dropped out, IAAF decided not to send additional wild card entries.

As expected, Greece will likely get 1 medal from Stefanidi. 
What I love to see is athletes like Anastasakis, Papachristou, Tentoglou or Karalis try to qualify for the finals and give a good showing. For the sprinters and hurdler, a semifinals appearance would be great.

You are probably right. The one medal will be from Stefanidi. She always shows up and does well at the big competitions. I really don't see who else could medal. Perhaps Papachristou and Tentoglou if they break their SB's during the competition.

I have always stress that any Greek athletes who have a chance at a medal or at least qualify for the finals either in a track or field event should break their own PB or NR to achieve such goals.

Bad news and I am feeling sad already 😪😥😭

Papachristou pulled out of the World Championship because of a Achilles Tendon injury, they said it is to be serious. She will go into rehab and should be ready for Tokyo 2020.

Hristoula Anagnostopoulou is going to the World Championship after IAAF gave her an invite, she accepted it. 
Elisavet Peseridou also was invited, but chooses to decline.

Here is my outlook for the Greek athletes in Doha 

Tentoglou should reach the finals (8.00 meters or better) and contest for a medal. If he jumps past his PB of 8.32, I think he will win a medal. 
Skarveli is competing in her first World Championship, she has a long shot to qualify for the finals. If she can throw at least 69.50, she got a chance. 
Filippidis should qualify if he jumps over 5.60 minimum, Karalis on the other hand might struggle and fail to qualify. He has not been very consistent this season. 
Anastasakis is due to qualify in his first major World Championships Finals, he has been very stable throwing 75 meters or better. The automatic qualifying spot is 76 meters and he has not thrown that far since March 26 in Thessaloniki (76.63). Frantzeskakis is making his senior debut, will be a long shot for him. He would need to throw at least 74.50 to have a shot in qualifying. 
Papamichail will be racing in the 50 Km race walk, I think he will finish in the top 30 with a new PB. 
Drisbioti will be racing in the 20 Km race walk, I think she will finish in the top 30 as well. 
Makri will be racing in the 50 Km race walk, she will finish in the top 20. 
Stefanidi is qualifying for the finals and will medal for sure (Gold medal is not a lock though). 
Kyriakopoulou might qualify (4.60) if she is back in top form prior to her injury. 
Vasiliou will probably not reach the semifinals unless she runs under 52.50 
Spanoudaki will probably not reach the semifinals as well unless she runs under her PB of 23.16
Douvalidis should reach the semifinals, but will need to break his SB of 13.46 in order to have the chance to reach the finals. 
Anagnostopoulou will not qualify for the finals unless she throws over 60 meters which she has not done so since August 2017 when she throw a PB of 61.53
Previlitzio will finish in the top 50 and possibly get a new PB.

Tentoglou and Stefanidi should have no problem making the finals. I would say Kyriakopoulou  should as well, but she is coming back after injury without any competitive action. Would be nice to have a double representation in the pole vault.

The only way Skarveli will qualify is if she breaks her PB. Provoleggio might get a PB but weather conditions will be very difficult despite the fact that the even will take place late at night. I see a lot of competitors not finishing the race.

Do you know how hot and humid Doha can be during the evening hours? Much worse than Houston.
