    Strong first days in Dec:
    Moloney 4293pts (10.59(1.0), 7.52 (1.0), 13.48, 1.92, 46.75)
    Dubler 4210pt (10.85 (1.0), 7.32 (0.4), 12.09, 2.13, 48.43)

    Moloney is 143 point DOWN on Gotzis, but 46.75 is a new PB. Dubler is 41 points down on Gotzis. Both will need very strong second days to get the Doha Qs they're chasing.

    How gusty could it have been, if all the wind readings you gave were between 0 and 1 mps?

    Maybe a cross-wind?

    Unless it happened to blow at almost exactly 90-degree angle to the runway, it couldn't have been that strong.

    Maybe overstated a bit; there is a thirty-degree arc (-15 deg to +15 degrees, where a 4mps wind gives a reading of 1mps or below on the straight, and a twenty degree arc (-10..+10) where it takes a 6+mps wind to get to 1mps on the straight. In addition, gusting winds only get in to the readings if the gusts correspond to the approximate 10 seconds on the sprints (not sure of intervals in the LJ/TJ), and gusty winds might read inconsistently in a tube mostly crossways to the wind. And even a 'slightly favorable' but strong cross wind is actually a disadvantage, just ask the cyclists (and MIT study had that the worst wind for an out/back time trial is a cross wind).

    It was indeed a cross-wind. The men's PV - due to start before the W LJ I think - was delayed about six hours and the runway changed positions twice as a result. The national flags were blowing all day.

    But the win will add about 150pts (WRanking points not DEC points) to the winner's score won't it - so could end up being much better than Gotzis points even if it's actually well below.

    World ranking points don't matter for Doha.
