    so what is going on here is that Christian Taylor, the mTJ G.O.A.T, was not invited so the IAAF could save some money? "Athletics" is on a downward spiral to oblivion. https://twitter.com/Taylored2jump/st...60813002481665

    Invitations are in the discretion (and the budget) of the individual meets, not the IAAF.

    Taylor has a good point though. Sure they cant afford all the top stars across all events at each DL meet. But if DL meet organizers are already prioritizing other people in other events over THE top star in the Triple Jump, then it doesn't bode well for next year when certain events have to be put on the chopping block.

    I see that Liadagmis Povea (Cuba) went 14.69 (48-2.5) in the wTJ with a -0.8 wind - that's impressive.

    If Christian Taylor wins gold in Tokyo next year, there would be no doubt in my mind (even without breaking the world record).
