    I don't recall any question about the 6.77. After all, it wasn't even her season's best.

    It was the mismarked shot performance that raised eyebrows aat the time.

    Possible mismarked shot. It is debatable as to what the distance was.

    Of those that didn't believe the 13.8, most think it was around 13.5, which means she'd only lose around 20 pts, she would go from the 12th best mark ever to 14th, but still ranking her above Ennis, still the best performance in the last 12 yrs, still better than all of Thiam's Championship golds etc.
    The absolute worst that some people suggested was 13.3, which means she would drop by around just 30 pts. This would take her to around Ennis's 6955, and Kluft's 6952 Olympic gold medal winning mark in Athens 2004.

    So lets not over egg the significance of this supposed mismarked shot.

    Tajay Gayle's massive PB to win the Men's LJ in Doha after qualifying by the skin of his teeth. That was my favourite performance.

    Great choice. It will be interesting to see if he performs up to that new level in 2020 or if he just had the performance of a lifetime.
