    Women's discus starts in less than two hours. Seems like it should have a thread.

    That's Perkovic's first loss since July 2017, ending a streak of 15 wins.

    Tough to win when you throw 7m off your season's best.

    She looked very shaky at the euro champs as well. Finally pulling out a 67 meter throw in the 5th round after nothing over 60 before that.

    No one in the Women's LJ has topped 22 feet yet (mid-3rd round).
    Makes you miss the likes of Bartoletta, Reese, and Spanovic all the more!!

    Heck, even Tara Davis might be competitive here!!
    LOL

    ADD: Spoke too soon!
    Ibarguen just hit 22-1.50 (6.74)----still in the 3rd round!
