    I'd say after the last few competitions Bukowiecki looks quite likely to make the podium.

    'Looks' is the operative word. They ALL look dangerous, and in truth, there will be some surprises, both bad and good. I have no problem with Buko winning the whole thing, or Walsh or Crouser, or . . . Bob!

    Probably at least a 50-50 chance that someone with a 22+ SB gets eliminated in the qualifying!

    Though I suppose we could see more than 12 qualify. Are the auto-Q marks known yet?

    Those are never set this far in advance. They're usually set right before the Technical Meeting, which in Doha will be held on the day before the start of competition, and announced then.

    I wonder if we are going to see the first 21m qualifying mark in history...

    That wouldn't be surprising. It could even be a tad higher.

    I am going to guess 20.9 for the auto Q.

    Looking at the list of entrants and their SBs, I suspect it will be over 21. No. 12 on the list is 21.51, no. 16 is 21.18.

    20.90 may be what it will actually take to make the final.

    I would think it'll be much higher, since it's almost always something 12 people can't reach.

    All I can say is compare this years seasons lists to 2017 and then look at the 2017 auto Q which was 20.55
