    I don't see the word "reigning" anywhere in my post!

    No, but when I first saw the stat, I thought that that's what it meant. I guess I inferred something that wasn't implied.

    I still say Nakaayi's win was more surprising.

    Nice call!

    Nakaayi, Peters, Ali, Kovacs probably the top upsets off the top of my head.

    The men's Steeple wasn't really a surprise, but based on the season it sure was. The HJ is that in spades, as 2.24 was the seasons best until the meet - 13 cm better.

    Decathlon: Frank Busemann (Dec silver 1996) has become an excellent commentator for German TV. After 8 events he announced quietly that Kaul would win. Kaul was in 6th place.

    HJ: Barshim had a best mark of 2.29 this season. WB was 2.34. Three exceeded WB, one with a clean card. Never thought Barshim would win.

    Could you send me some of your stock market picks ?
