    Still possible that Morgunov could come back and surprise us, I suppose.
    Indeed. many could, but not all will on one given day.
    I don't see how Morgunov, even if fully recovered, could be anywhere near 6.

    In my opinion, Braz will be closer to 5.40 than 6.00 meters in Doha. Aside from his excellent season in 2016, Braz has been inconsistent and unreliable in World Championship meets.

    I was very impressed by Braz at the Monaco DL this year, but I must agree that he's been nowhere near that good since then and is very unlikely to be on the podium at the Worlds.

    I'd be surprised to see anyone other than Kendricks and Duplantis over 6m in Doha. But of course I love good surprises.

    I think it is unlikely also. He did go 5.92 this year so it is possible.

    It would surprise you to see Lisek go 6 there?
    Right now I have it
    Kend
    Mondo
    Lisek
    but any of them in any order would not surprise me at all and someone HAS to go 6, yes?

    HA! I am temperamentally incapable of discussing the Walks, but the mHJ is indeed a HOT MESS!
    I was hoping Zurich would clear the air a bit, but it remains so murky, I can't even pick ONE person I think should medal.
    Prot now seems like a possibility and maybe Stark, but Ivanyuk is iffy. Pre-faves Barshim and Bondo seem out of it. Maybe Ghazal . . . Akimenko . . . it's a total crap shoot!

    Lisek had other concerns these past few days, with him becoming a father for the first time, but he'll probably re-focus over the next month.
