If you are using a different event as a qualifier, you will be asked the name of the event and you must add the year and a link to results or the time you took. If you do not add this information, your entry will not be accepted. Before entry day, gather this information on a word document then copy and paste it directly into the box, rather than having to pause your entry to go and collate your evidence.
