    Bigot from France has to be in the medal discussion also. He is consistently over 76 meters this year. And he looks to improve on his 4th place finish at the 2017 WC.

    She is so tiny! Power to weight ratio and great technique. The TJ gods were in attendance that day (tech. a few days earlier) with Edwards breaking it twice.

    Ha! The announcer even used the word 'lethargic' to describe her!

    I now suspect that the runway there, not unlike a gymnastics mat, is 'sprung' (literally, springs under it). How else can one account for both TJ WRs being set there, by people who look very journeymanish in their jumping.

    But you do realize Kravets won the Olympic title the following year with 15.33?

    I would still never use the word journeymanish when describing Edwards jumping. You could see both speed and power there, as well as an uncanny bouncability (yes, I just invented that word).

    No, you didn't.

    Description:
    First, the medium-sized bouncy ball (that had a diameter of 3.3 centimeters) was held and then dropped from the top of a meter stick that was held up straight.

    That's OK then. Mind you I thought Jonathan was English, not Irish.
