              The most interesting aspect of this is that the favorites either have some niggling injury they need to protect or they are training through it. The real comp will be for 3rd place.
              My only predicton is that the scores will be somewhat 'off'.
              On the other hand, at the WC, the USA faves will be dy-no-mite on their home turf.

                  Weather Underground shows temps in the high 60s Friday, high 70s Saturday, low chance of rain, winds from the West.

                    I don't see Harrison Williams on the start lists.

                    https://www.flashresults.com/2022_Me...6_USACombined/

                    I think it will take 8450 to make the team, which looks to be the same as the Oly team: GS, ZZ and Bastien.

                    Garland and D Williams have a shot if they score near their PRs.

                    Will Kendall Williams not compete in all the events since she has a bye?

                    Bougard and Hall seem in. Who else: Hawkins, Brooks?

                      I’d love to see a Brooks comeback story since she was the one who lost out with heat exhaustion at trials last year in the 106 degree weather.

                        No Annie Kunz? Anyone know the reason?

                            I'm going to qualify that.
                            If those three have a nominally good (not great) day, all three should be over 8400, and that should be the team.
                            But I have no idea if that's what will happen, going by how little we know about their prep.

                            I'm excited to watch this on usatf.tv (subscription necessary), because I know that GS had an nagging injury issue (posted online) and has been grinding to work through it. I hope all the athletes can finish the 10 events with creditable scores.

                              First day preview men:


                              Assuming that Scantling is healthy enough to score 8,550 and make the team then the fight for the last two tickets is likely to be between ZZ, Bastien and Garland. Below is an event-by-event preview.

                              100m – every 0.1 worth ~23 points

                              Bastien is likely to be the fastest of the three and should run ~10.5 if he is in good shape. ZZ should come close behind. The real question is Garland with a PB of only 10.79. In the winter he broke his 60 PB to 6.90 only 0.15 seconds from Ayden Owens who ran lately 10.27. An improvement towards 10.6x will do well for his qualification chances. Devon Williams broke his PB in the 100 to 10.56. He will need to repeat this score and more if he is to stand a chance for qualification.

                              LJ every 10cm – 25 points
                              Even though all three have roughly the same PB (~7.70) the LJ is as always a key to decathletes' success. With only three jumps to get it right, even Bastien in his brilliant performance last year, struggled in this event. Of the three Garland seems to be the list consistent with jumps in the 7.30-7.45 rather than 7.50+. The LJ is also a key event for Scantling. If he can finish the LJ with a good mark (~7.30) without aggravating his injury, then he is in good shape to make the team.

                              Check: if Garland is within 50 points of either ZZ or Bastien he is in good chance to finish a head of that competitor. On the flip side if he is behind by more than 100 points it will be hard for Garland to close the gap.

                              SP every 50cm – equal ~31 points
                              Garland is not only the best in the field, but his 16.65 PB is one of the best among active decathletes. Behind ZZ will probably trail by almost 1.5m and Bastien will be lucky to be 2m behind. Of special interest is the fight between Scantling and Garland for the title of the ‘best thrower among US decathletes”.

                              Check: Garland needs to be ahead 30-50 points.

                              HJ – every height (3cm) equal 30 points.
                              Same as the SP, Garland is one of the best high jumpers in the world among decathletes. Last year, at the trials, he jumped 2.17 to lead ZZ by almost 50 points after four events and Bastien by 200 points. ZZ and Bastien have a better finish to the decathlon, and Garland needs to be at his best to stop their comeback. Both ZZ (2.14) and Bastien (2.08) set PBs in the trials and will need to be very close to them, in order to maintain their chances. The HJ is the weakest event of Devon Williams (1.98) and he will need to be very close to this mark if he wants to have any chance of making the team.

                              400 every 1s equal (~50 points).
                              Bastien is the best in the field with 47.49 PB and without Harrison Williams he is likely to win the event. Garland improved his PB by 1.5s and would do well to keep within a second from Bastien. ZZ further half a second behind will wait for the second day to make his move.

                              Check: Garland should finish the first day with ~120 points ahead of Bastien, who should in turn lead ZZ by ~30 points.
