    I thought that it was well over 13, about 13.5 or 13.6

    The question is what do you do now if someone protests the measurement. Whatever it really was, it was clearly her best put, and there's probably no way to determine the actual distance now.

    I suppose you have to protest it in the moment? Equally in this case the person who's most invested in it being checked was in the other pool so may not have even seen it.

    Solid day from Thiam, nothing spectacular but got the job done no massive disasters in any event. I'm sure she'd have wanted more in the HJ but 1.95m at least level pegged with KJT. Tomorrow is a new day, and it'll certainly be a different day for KJT tomorrow being closer to Thiam than she has seemed before.

    It may all come down to Thiam's elbow and if she can throw like she knows she can or if she'll be hampered because of it.

    Been impressed with Preiner. I thought it'd be an Austrian bronze from Dadic, there is still the potential for a Austrian bronze just from a different source. Really impressed with Kunz as well, but her javelin and 800 aren't much to write home about so I imagine she'll start to fall away tomorrow but still seems like it'll be a great overall performance for her.

    Excellent observation, as usual. For what it's worth, I am presently projecting Kunz to score 6112, for fourteenth place. That is 184 points above my initial projection, the greatest positive difference after four events.

    A critical factor will be how "bad" KJT is in the JT!

    Even more importantly, how good will Nafi be? The possible variation in her performance is a lot larger than KJT's; she could do 58 or 49. Is her elbow still bothering her?

    This 3-4-5-11 by Team USA is pretty impressive so far! I'm not very familiar with Kunz and Hawkins and did not expect them to be that high up (esp. Kunz). A bronze from any of them would be super and even top six finishes by any would be pretty cool.
