      Gittens will have fresh legs so this could be quite the battle. AM smelling big points in this event if Acquah beats the prediction.

        Tight for top spots. Excellent competition.

          Help me out, I'm new here. Tuned in late to wLJ, noted finals held on two runways. Presumably, prelims on two pits and finalists stayed on the same pit. Thanks to the graphics you could kinda keep up; although the 7, 8, 9 jumpers sometimes jumped after the leaders. OK, it would not be "fair" to relocate some jumpers but somehow it kinda abrades my Luddite soul. How did they seed the simultaneous preliminary "flights"?

            At one point the jumpers in 6-11th place were at 20'10 to 20'10 3/4" -- six within two cm.

              That's about where I came in. Surprisingly common to have a tie for the last place in the finals but a three-way tie is a rarity.

                  Was the weather bad?
                  With all that talent present, surprised there were no 22 footers!
                  I thought there would be at least 3 of them!

                    Yeah only 1 PB or SB out of 24 jumpers. Clearly not ideal.

                      winds ranged from +2.5 to –1.1, kind of thing that makes getting steps right rough

                        Costa Goulas says Tara Davis used a 16 stride approach at NCAA and said that was a short approach. What is typical for an elite long jumper?

                          8-lefts (or rights) is NOT a short approach for most good jumpers. 9 to 10 is common among elites. 11 is more than most can handle (step problems ensue).
