    Who on earth is Genki Dean, and how is a guy who has only thrown above 82 once in the last 10 years the 10th favorite?

      Dean is consistent and can handle any conditions; attributes that go a long way at this type of meet. Are there other throwers who could equally claim that spot - well, yes, there are plenty, like Ramos, Novac, Abdelrahman, Gailums, Etelätalo or Thompson. But conversely, you could just toss them all in a hat and pull a name out; and somebody pulled out Dean.

      The top 9 are a step ahead of everybody else (and the top 4 another step up). If Arshad Nadeem hadn't been injured he'd be the obvious pick for the other spot, but as it is, he's a massive ??? coming in.

        Your knowledge, sir, is really encyclopedic. A modern day Roberto Luigi Quercetani from Finland(?) in my estimation.

            Moniker chosen from To Kill a Mockingbird? Could there be a much more Italian name than RLQs? He retired to Florence some years back, one of my two favorite cities in the world - the other being Kyoto. I was taking a stab at LU's nationality.

              Aye-yup. Previous moniker here was Marlow from The Heart of Darkness. Next could be Yossarian.

                Following up on the whys and wherefores of monikers on this board. Just tried out LUu's using google. All the leads point towards Finland, so may not have been a bad guess.

                  LopenUupunut means something like "tired to death" in an ugly language

                          Walcott only 8th (78.87) in Group A, at big risk for not qualifying.

                          Hoffman three fouls, too

                            So that's one of the 6 men who's thrown 89m this year gone, Indian and Grenadan fans probably wouldn't mind if Helander joined him on his way out. Would be shocked if Peters and Weber didn't breeze through to join Chopra and Vadlejch.

                              Ramos's cartwheel buffer technique is something to behold...
