AFAIK, she was always a LJer, she just dabbled (at a very good level) in the heptathlon.
Not unless she makes a major breakthrough in the HJ and improves in the throwing events. But then, it's...

I very much doubt there were any individual 9-digit bribes, unless you count in Mexican pesos.

Can't think of any world-class sprinters who were initially multi eventers, but in other events, women like Naide Gomes, Tia Hellebaut and Barbora Spotakova progressed spectacularly in their...

The question is how much faster she could get as a sprinter if she didn't have to train for 6 other events. Logic dictates it must have an impact.
In Ostrava today
m300 1 Karol Zalewski 32.25 (beat Maslak), 4 Rafał Omelko 32.58

He had surgery oh his back in winter, and is gradually training himself back into shape. I found an article from 2 weeks ago where his coach is quoted as saying he's not expecting much from this...
Krisztian Pars placed third, the first time since September 2011 that he finished outside the top two in any competition.
Paweł Fajdek was the clear winner in Ostrava with 80.75, 1.39 ahead of Dilshod Nazarov, with Pars over 3 meters behind. Wojciech Nowicki was somewhat disappointing, down in seventh at 75.37.
=WL for Lićwinko in her first outdoor competition of the year. Both HJers with WC qualifying marks.
Also in Rehlingen, Jakub Szyszkowski was 2nd in SP with 20.08.
Anita Włodarczyk won the IAAF HT Challenge meet in Ostrava with 76.61. Not as far as she threw in Beijing, but still a dominant performance. Joanna Fiodorow had a poor competition, finishing eighth...
The HT competitions will be taking place tomorrow, the day before the rest of the meet, and pretty much everyone who's anyone will be there. It will be interesting to see how far Włodarczyk can...

I didn't say BIG favorite. But she's improved at both 60 and 100 already this year, and her 200 season debut was faster than last year. She's got every chance of running faster than she did in...

I don't think anyone's hanging a medal around her neck in the 100. IMO she's an outside medal contender at best in that event, but I consider her the favorite in the deuce.

The wind was +1.8, so it was almost perfect.
Piotr Małachowski won the competition in Hengelo today and finally got a WC qualifier with 65.87. Robert Urbanek finished third with 64.47. Marcin Lewandowski also took the victory and achieved a...
So what you really did say was that two guys who were no. 1 and no. 2 in the world three weeks before the NCAAs will fight for the title?
You don't seriously believe they will be 1 and 2 on the world list after Goetzis, do you?
Włodarczyk reportedly withdrew from Halle due to a minor muscle pull. Her shape is presumably still far from optimal, so if she can go close to 78 in her first competition of the year, things are...
Anita Włodarczyk won the HT competition at the IAAF Challenge meet in Beijing with 77.73 WL. This was her best ever season opening, as well as her best ever throw in May and a new Asian all-comers...

Erm... If people don't automatically assume a great junior will make it big at the senior level, that actually means people DON'T have unrealistic expectations.
Saturday was the first day of the WC qualifying window set by the Polish federation and two athletes achieved Q marks on the very same day in Kielce.
Wojciech Nowicki won the HT with 78.58, just...

Bukowiecki had a poor result on Saturday in Kielce, placing sixth with 18.87 in the senior SP competition. He did relatively better in DT, throwing the senior implement 52.65. I think that was his...
Or she could simply be referring to her brother's mental problems.
