    Maybe, Cunningham was pressing her in London though and has a 1.99 this season. So lets see. Lasitskene has been so dominant this year and is still clear favorite IMO, but her loosing in London would not surprise me.

    Palsyte jumped 2.01 indoors. Haven't seen any outdoor results from her. Injured?

    She no-heighted at Pre and that's been her only outdoor meet.

    She's competed in 18 meets this year and won them all. So, yes, she is clearly the favorite in London. And her losing in London would definitely surprise me.

    And that one "meet" consisted of a single jump at her opening height on which she apparently hurt herself, then withdrew.

    Palsyte is counting the days down to the London WC on her twitter page. So, it looks like she will attempt to give it a try.

    her Twitter page leads to an Instagram post right after Pre

    <<It was really hard for me to accept the fact that I will not be able to #compete in @preclassic . I felt a sharp pain in my take off leg while doing a warm up jump. I risked to jump anyway and left the sector with even bigger pain.

    It's always hard when your head wants to #jump but your body is just not able to do that. I know that this is not the end of the world and it's just a beginning of the season so I have plenty of time to heal and return even stronger. It's just so hard to face the fact that I've been working and balancing on the sharp edge to reach my goals and in the first meeting I got injured. >>

    I'm not sure I would worry about Lasitskene much. She might have been a bit shaky early in the competetion here, but I've seen bits of the meet now on YouTube and she had 2 *very* good attempts at 2.08 to end with.

    She will be in Monaco next, then the Russian Champs 28 July! Certainly not taking the rest up approach. Off the top of my head I can't think of a bigger favourite going into London.

    She is definately a clear favorite, but WVN, Włodarczyk, Semenya and maybe others are way farther favorites in their respective events. At least IMO.
