    Prior to the WC in 1983, there was only one chance every four years to show you are the best in the world. In some events like the JT, being Euro Champ in the 1960s, was considered almost up there. (This, along with a one-inch loss in 197, is why Lusis is regarded as an all-time great, ). In more recent times, you got quite a few chances in four years, to show you are the best around. And when talking of Jorma, Kimmo was very much on my mind.

    How do the rankings go here?

    Peters was undefeated, World Champion, a couple minor titles, but didn't compete on the circuit.

    Kirt was DL champion, WC silver medalist, best series of marks, but didn't win any DL meets apart from the final.

    Vetter had some wins against strong fields (including one DL win) plus WC bronze, but competed quite sparingly due to his injuries. Kirt and Vetter are both 0-1 against Peters and 2-2 against each other (Kirt is 5-1 against Hofmann, Vetter 3-1).

    Vetter probably loses to Kirt, but it's harder to compare either of them to Peters. The rankings lower down are a bit murky too, Cheng is 4-3 against Hofmann and they both bombed at the WCs but Hofmann was the only thrower with two DL wins.

    Yeah, shouldn't have talked about shoulders. Now I have bad conscience. I rooted for him, though.

    Peter's record is thin but he did not lose to any of the others here and they mutually lost to each other, with Kirt having the best claim. Also, it isn't like Peters was ducking people.
