    Lotsa overlap with the above.

    I'm afraid I see a lot of clear favorites, which ratchets down what we typically think of as the excitement of the events. In the events I don't list, I am definitely...

    Because indoor venues, with the tighter tracks and cramped venues, present a circumstance where marks are VERY typically impaired. That's why you can't set indoor running records on a 300m track. ...

    Hmmm, your disenchantment with the USATF (deservedly so!) has got you in an ornery mood in regard to the sport you so fervently love and given so much to. In regard to the above:

    It's not like they set out to screw wPVers - anyone in the HJ, LJ, TJ, and SP (with metal shot) is under the same rules.
    They're not 'screwing' anyone; they're just saying 'jump higher' than anyone...

    The capacity of a normal male's stomach is indeed 1 gallon (~ 4 liters).
    He (supposedly) drank TEN gallons in 45 minutes. He's a big guy, and I'm sure his stomach may have been even bigger than...

    Y'all wanna get sloshed, knock yourself out! I'm talking anatomy here and 45 minutes isn't enough 'rental time' to make it possible.

    I'm sorry, but that's anatomically impossible, even for a man his size!!

    Here's betting home-town girl, Murer, rises to the occasion and has something to say about the podium. Not to mention Silva, who hangs out there too.

    A nice little tailwind provides a HUGE advantage over any indoor venue. If you did it indoors, it's worth the same or better than outdoors. I agree with the 'one record' concept.

    She would have been the favorite and who knows, maybe she did have another WR in her, but this little hissy fit is unbecoming. She should be furious at the Russian Fed and no one else.
