    Depends what you compare them to. IMO the track in Beijing is at least as fast as Eugene. Then you've got tracks like La-Chaux-du-Fonds, where people regularly run crazy fast times.

    Why? She's by far the best starter, and her finish isn't as good this year as it was in the past, so leg 1 plays exactly to her strengths.

    And so it would seem the world's best 800 runners don't run the 800. The WL is 1:56.99, with second place on the world list at 1:57.70, and here we've got multiple women running in the same range at...

    Well, it is partly that, I suppose. Plus the fact that with a strict first-3-past-the-post system and very competitive fields, the US athletes need to peak for the trials to the extent most top...

    5 women clear first time at 4.70. This equals the record for clearing this height, and there's more to come.

    Morris and Bengtsson both with clean cards up to 4.70. This height could end up what 5.80 was for the men.

    I don't know specifically about WC, but the best marks for places are listed here. Apparently the previous record for women clearing 4.60 in one competition was 9.

    The old stars were not necessarily jumping huge in every championship final, either. Pedroso won with 8.42 in 1997 and 8.40 in 2001. Phillips took gold with 8.32 in 2003 and 8.45 in 2011. It's not...

    Wenxiu Zhang may be a medal contender. She's done nothing all year, but it looks like she's in shape when it matters once again. Heidler was unconvincing in qualifying, but at least she made it. With...

    Jóźwik can surprise here again, the way she did at the Euros last year. She lost many meters due to Montano's fall, but still qualified very comfortably. Looks very strong.
