    Is the Ibarg pick wishful thinking, or do we know she's not only fully healed but has put in all the requisite (hard!) training to be at least 14.80?

    Rojas has looked on another level compared to the others. In one of the DLs she lost, I think, but she had a bunch of 15m+ jumps with 1-4cm fouls; I think any three could have won, even if taken from 5cm back (or more from one that looked like it was almost 5.20).

    Ibarguen not looking her best, but she gets the Q with 14.32 in round 2.

    Top American Orji in at 14.30 Q on her 1st try. Her teammate Franklin's best of 14.23 is 9th, will very likely get in. Rojas fouls, then gets 14.31. Povea of Cuba only 14.08 after 2, so needs a big one now.

    We got an athlete through a qualifying round at these championships! Truly, the world is our oyster.

    Mäkelä is such a good Q-round jumper, I hope she can deliver in the final this time.

    Interesting--wind readings ranged from -0.3 to +0.9. Most were in the middle of that range, slightly positive.

    And yet some top women had huge problems on the board. On her final jump Povea was 48 cm behind! Had she cut it even just to 30 cm, she would have qualified. Rojas gave away a similar sort of distance on her Q jump.
