    They can, but to do so sacrifices the weight-room work necessary for the BIG peak at OG.

    Ryan Whiting threw 22.00 at the 2012 World Indoors and came back with a 21.49 in late August after the Games, so it is quite possible.

    Walsh won the 2016 WIC at 21.78 in March and then popped a 22.21 PR in September at Zagreb.

    Plus, I can think of about 40,000 good reasons for an elite athlete to consider World Indoors...

    After Doha, should we consider anything under 22.0 to be a training throw?

    The 22.90(+)s were clearly aberrations, but yeah, to throw THREE feet under that now seems so-so.

    Given Tom Walsh will be in his summer in Feb (as will Jacko Gill), I would expect them to be at World Indoors and in good shape.
