    Romanchuck moves to silver with 6.92m.

    Bowie now needs at least 6.92 to medal.

    Mihambo finishing with 7.09 and 7.16 (which would have equalled her PB before this competition).

    The question now is, will she do one or both sprints and the long jump next year? I still say, get out of the pit and onto the curve.

    Good (and surprising) series from Bowie.

    I hope that Bowie at least keeps herself in relay contention, as I see the w4x100 shaping up to be a barn burner in Tokyo 2020.

    I do struggle with some of the IAAF reports. On the long jump, the IAAF wrote "Mihambo kicked of with a modest - by her standards - leap of 6.52 in round one" no mention of the fact that she was 40cm behind the board and it was a 6.9+ jump. Then "Mihambo fouled in the second round" Again, no mention of the fact that her 11cm foul landed around the 7.4 mark.

    It's the kind of misleading reporting we expect from tabloids, not the IAAF.

    Bowie jumped much better than I expected, pretty wild, but with that speed she's always going to be a dangers. After what's been a very tough few years, I hope she makes it back and combines the sprints and LJ next year.

    Apart from Bowie, Mihambo's 11.21 100m this year was the fastest I think in the field and it showed on the runway. She also has the confidence to back it up.

    Overall a great competition.

    Mihambo's 7.30 was not perfect on the board, either. She gave away 8 cm there.
