    1cm is within the margin of measurement error. That is a 3-way tie for Gold. End of story.

    Konrad Bukowiecki said in an interview after the competition that he felt demotivated seeing the results of the medalists. And who can blame him?

    Maybe im lost, but how could anyone be demotivated at these results. Even non throwing fans are amazed how good this competition turned out.

    What would be the reason for a federation to not want to use a more precise system of measurement?

    HE is demotivated.

    Maybe because it hasn't been proven to be more accurate?

    A newfangled measurement system should be parallel tested with the established method in several smaller meets before being used for a global championship.

    Umm, no it would not be. You then go to lookback and if you want that argument Crouser wins Gold because he had by far the best series of any of them.

    But that was just one jump. It's much worse when there are 3 (or 4) rivals reaching such cosmic heights in one competition.
