  • 2022 Indoor World Championships Field Events

    I sure hope I'm just being paranoid, but in looking at the schedule released today, the LJ/TJ/SP have an ominous listing.
    Rounds 1-5 have one time, but Round 6 has a separate time listed.
    They wouldn't pull that DL crap and have the only last round determine placings . . . would they??!!

    Of course they would 😑

      I could not find any clarification about this either way, but I cannot fathom why you would schedule round 6 separately unless the previous rounds were not going to count.

        '16 World Indoor in Portland had separate final window

          Is there a link for the 2016 schedule that shows separate round 6 final? Everything I see for Portland shows one time for the Final

          ex. 2016 women's Long Jump:
          Day 2 – Friday, 18 March, Afternoon 18:55 Long Jump W Final

          The Belgrade schedule has an explicit calendar separation between rounds 1-5 and round 6 which makes it seem questionable.

          ex. 2022 women's Long Jump
          DAY 3 - Sunday, Afternoon, 20 March
          17:30 Long Jump W F 1-5
          19:02 Long Jump W F 6

            I'm pretty sure it was not for ONE round.
            If this is the DL kaka, there needs to be a loud dissent sounded NOW.

            They can do the 'paring down' thing, if they really want to.
            Only 8 get the last three.
            Only 6 get the last two.
            Only 4 get the last one.

            But ALL attempts count in the placings.

              at both Portland '16 and Birmingham '18 only the top 4 after 5 rounds got to take the sixth jump/throw. Finish order was determined by overall marks, not the last round.

                I prefer mine, which I think was either your idea or based on something you wrote about.

                  I can. It's a way to make sure there's no time conflict between the final round and any track events.

                    which was exactly the thinking when the Portland concept was created. It comes in a scheduled break in running events

                      So they sit and wait . . . ?

                        Makes sense if you want to emphasize the field events....assuming they do what they did before.

                          given that the "final 4" are the people who—almost assuredly—are the ones who had the final 4 attempts at the end of 5 rounds, most of them would welcome a chance to wait. Indeed, some/many of the jumpers in Portland griped about not having sufficent down time between attempts 5 and 6.

                            OK - do we know they'll only give the top 4 a final jump?

                              Reducing the number of athletes advancing after each round does create a quick rotation in the final round. Stop messing with a proven product.
