    The battle for bronze looks like it could be wide open now. Schafer not contesting opened the door a lot, but with now Krizsán and Dadic going there is a real opportunity for someone to come through. Vetter might be my pick due to her experience but wouldn't surprise if Preiner, Bougard or Williams get it. Probably come down to a test of nerves. I'll also be interested to see how Ruckstuhl progresses given if she's anywhere near the mix her javelin could give her a boost over the others vying for bronze (aside from Vetter)

    KJT obviously feeling confident, choosing not to come in until 1.83 in the HJ.

    Agreed. Media just gives current totals, which are obviously important, but miss an important component.

    I agree; PB projections always make the competition look like a disappointment.

    I agree. Using PBs alone allows for distortion by outlying performances or an older athlete having some PBs they can no longer match in something like HJ or 1500.

    Ahhh... the heptathlon giveth ... and taketh away. Williams misses 1.80 in the HJ and will have to settle for 1.77 after her stunning 12.58 100H. Bougard got it on her 3rd try and moves up to 1.83.

    They seem to be taking turns in who takes more attempts at each height.
