    I've known Nina for a while now; it's been very interesting watching her progression and I hope she can hit some very big scores in coming years.

    That is a great video and shows the distance much better IMO than a view zoomed into the javelin during its flight.

    While his sample size was only 2, in the 2017 World Champs 100m, Kukyoung Kim of Korea had reactions times of:
    0.107 in the Heats
    0.115 in the Semis

    I'm curious to know if he's had similar times...

    Impressive stuff. He appears to be quite developed and muscular already; how tall is he? Hopefully he can continue progressing as he moves toward U20 and senior.

    That's a very good point. Also, lonewolf has hit the nail on the head. I feel that I'd do a decent job in this position, but do not meet their criteria.

    By my calculations, it's closer to 0.4% improvement from 18.21m to 18.29m.
    (Also, I get 18.21 metres = 59.744.. feet, which is between 59' 8 7/8" and 59' 8 15/16".)
