    While I definitely enjoyed this race, I find tactical races more enjoyable to watch.

    Her WC record in the 1500 when she keeps both her shoes on is excellent.

    Depends on what you mean by world level. Phil McMullen in 2003 in Talence did 3517/4064. In 1992 in Narbonee, Alain Blondel did 3866/4243. For scores over 8500, only Dave Johnson comes close with...

    She just exceeded (my) expectations in all 7 events and beat her PB by over 100 points. Next year she'll be 27, which may not seem old, but most Heptathletes have had their PRs by then. Out of the...

    I have Warner a bit lower on my projections, so I agree that it's wide open and any of these 4 could win.

    I'd say the hurdles probably don't change these projections much except for Kazmirek, of course and the huge news that Mayer is injured (as Powell suspected yesterday).

    I think it looks bad because of the fast group he was in. He just had the 2nd best day 1 of his career.

    I guess I'm the only one that likes it. Family on the victory stand, however, I hope to never see again.

    Great comp by Oiglane. Looks like he'll add about 200 to his PB. I believe he's also the youngest guy in the competition.

    I certainly don't think James owes it to anyone to share his personal life, which seems to be the general consensus here. I think most of the people that have mentioned that maybe he should be more...

    So Bougard needs to beat Williams by about 4.4 seconds? I'm guessing she does.

    Day-Monroe looks to get close to 6500 in 3rd place. Have 3 Americans ever scored that high in the same competition...

    She's a little over 200 up on her PR score. She did really well the rest of her events in Gotzis this year, so I think she's unlikely to remain that far ahead of her PR.

    So she just needs to PR in every event except the LJ? No problem.

    I think its fairly unlikely that she's putting much thought into this goal.

    I'd imagine that someone 23 or older that already has a PR above 8000 has never added 400 points to their PR in a year.

    The form chart looks pretty accurate after day one for the top 4. Victor looks to win by 100 rather than the 200 it looked like he'd win by. Bastien had a great first day and could break 8000 and...

    I'm surprised to see that the all time head to head standings between Claye and Taylor favors Claye, 19-18. Taylor has a 4-1 advantage in Oly/WC meetings.

    Is she really set for life already? Seems like she's one of the few athletes throwing away a bunch of money by retiring. One more high paying year seems like it would be better than her having to put...

    Personally, I thought it was mostly excellent this year. My only real complaint is that it was hard to navigate to the videos you wanted to see (if you weren't watching live) without having the...

    She's 7-1 against Bartoletta, but only 1-4 against Reese. Reese is also 4-1 vs Bartoletta. I assume Reese is back to #1 this year (6th overall #1 ranking).

    Svetlana Feofanova had already broken the world record when she was 20 in 2001 and broke it again a few more times before Isinbayeva really dominated the event, so I would think she was the favorite...
