    I had this meet confused with some other meet that had horrible ways of determining places -- like each athlete gets 4 attempts, top 4 get 2 more, top 2 get 1 more and result dependent only on the last attempt. I don't see anything like that in any of the documents. Good.
    Cheers,

    Not quite that way at the Continental Cup. There, last year, each of the 8 athletes got 2 attempts, then the top 4 (max one from each team) got 2 more, and then the top 2 got 1 more. Total jumps/throws = 25 attempts.

    I wonder if there is time to replace some of these last second withdrawals?

    If they are scoring this meet, I don't see how Team USA can keep it close at all. Team Europe should win this easily!

    Oh great, i just lost all interest in THE MATCH. They are messing with the field events again. Once again we get new rules for jumps and throws. Vertical jumps only get a TOTAL of eight jumps, while the other field events are all elimination crap after three rounds.
    Screw you.

    Eight person field in horizontal jumps cut to 6,5,4 after rounds 3,4,5. Meh. That doesn't seem like a big deal. Vertical jump rules seems fairly awful.
