    Encouraging to see a PB for Jacko Gill in Brno (Czech Republic) - 21.13m. First result I've seen for him since the Oceania Champs so hopefully more to come.

    Yes, it's only an extra 12cm but there's hope that there's more to come especially given his steady progress this year:
    20.53
    20.71
    20.76
    20.75
    21.13

    His new PB only puts him at =68th best throw on the NZ alltime list. Who would have predicted that 6-7 years ago?

    Would love to see Jacko continue to improve. I sometimes forget that he made an Olympic final at a pretty young age and light weight. If he can get healthy and pack on some pounds - there are great things to come. 21.21 is a serious toss.

    Any word on Valerie Adams? I see from above she had a child just last March, so I'm not expecting her to be in medal shape. But maybe for Tokyo.

    She hasn't competed at all this year, but I believe she does plan to go for Tokyo. This was posted in the headline section of the front page here earlier this year:

    Just 13cm to go to reach what this old fart still considers the base line for a serious put.
