If someone releases 3 meters before the line, and loses by six inches…. They lost by six inches. Those lost feet, inches, centimeters are certainly an opportunity for improvement. But that’s alll. Just like you can’t PR in practice because only the tame measure / laser.
    muxh respect to all the jumpers. It was an exciting final.
    Having been a Master track official, specializing in the horizontal jumps, for 50 years, I am familiar with the rules. I have seen this scenario play out literallly thousands of times. I was just anticipating the future of new long jump blood.

      Yep! Happy with that. A good performance by Brume. Her medal achievements are starting to look quite impressive.

          The winning mark wasn't outstanding in the context of some of the results we've seen, but that was one hell of a competition. What a clutch performance by Mihambo, I'm so pleased for her.

              Lots of data to play with - Brume was very good on the board, for instance. And thankfully the leader of the "if only they could hit the board" competition was also the gold medalist.

                  There was something poetic about Mihambo winning on the last jump after seeing her lose out in multiple DLs because of the final attempt nonsense.

                          Following up on a conversation I had yesterday - has Tara Davis already turned pro? Pretty sure she has at least one season left at UT if she wants it.
