    Any chance you could pick four (or better still, five) mSPers? Would help the rest of us figure it out.

    Interested to see what happens in the women's javelin. The level isn't as good as in some other events, but perhaps exactly because of that it's wide open and totally unpredictable.

    Finland placed 11th out of 12 in the Super League, sadly that probably counts as a good result rather than a bad one. Highlights included Simo Lipsanen's 2nd in the TJ with a 16.76 SB, Topi...

    I would also pick Tavernier from the 74 group, though she did bomb in the final last time.

    Malyshik is very inconsistent. I don't think she's a favorite to medal but I wouldn't count her out.

    I wouldn't count on three Ethiopians in the final. Tefera is great when on song but he's not on song very regularly; Kejelcha might go 5/10; they don't have anyone else who's run under 3:35 this year...
