    I wonder how much further Romani might have thrown with a better dew point?

    Excellent analysis. Thank you. I wonder if that was also the case with Houlihan. She is preparing for a very competitive US Trials, so her legs might still be a bit heavy from her training schedule. If she makes the team, it will be interesting to see if she doesn't allow the 10 meter gap to arise open the third lap.

    Gatlin was one of the performances of the meet for me, despite all the amazing other athletes. His fastest time since the Olympic trials in 2016 and has been up and down since winning world's. Barring injury, I don't see how he finished outside the top 3 in that Doha final.

    I actually don't think so - he was missing his release yesterday, looked like a little slow with his left leg plant, too. Romani got it just right on his throws. Walsh looked sluggish. Should be a very exciting Doha in any case. That was a great SP comp, wish I'd seen it in person.

    Crouser and Crouser looked off to me too, but I couldn't pin-point a reason. As you say, Romani looked impressive - in speed, strength, timing and technique. Can he hold that till Doha (or get better??!!). I sure hope this wasn't just his day of days. By the way, he gets my vote for Traps of the Year. He looked like 300 pounds of bowling balls, stuffed into a 200-pound bowling bag!
