    She probably will. She wants that 4th gold medal.

    Off Topic: Why isn't VCB running 200m at Monaco? She needs the practice.

    Lavillenie takes on Hooker (making his 2011 debut) in Monaco... let's see if you're theory still holds after that...

    Heidler would be my top choice.

    As for Thorky, my hesitance to annoint him would be rooted in the ugly nature of groin pulls and how just when you think it's gone....

    And traditionally (although not so much with the new implement) the javelin has been an event fraught with shocking losses of form.
