      Glad to see Thompson get in the final! Hope he can summon up some of that JavFest magic in the final and get back up to 87m or higher.

        It varies between a front handspring to a cartwheel round off..... reminds a little of the front flip shot put some throwers tried 15 years ago that I think was made illegal. Does anyone know if he used the "round off" when he threw his PB 84+ meters. Too bad he didn't PB yesterday: I would love to have seen 6 more throws

              Dominant performance by Peters. Three 90m throws in a major final is absolute mint.

                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.
                Genki Dean was eventually 9th, so a bit *better* than in the TFN formchart. Otherwise quite good correspondence between the formchart and actual results (1243nn87tn, if you understand the code). The 5th and 6th (Nadeem and Etelätalo) were among those mentioned by LU. Etelätalo never throws very far (PB under 85m), but always manages to get among the top 8.

                Peters indeed deserves credit for his series. One of the most dominating performances in these Games.

                  Is it fair to say that the shot and disc are rarely won on the first throw, it does happens sometime in the hammer, but it is a fairly regular occurrence in the javelin? Asking for a, friend....

                    Steve Backley on the BBC said that he thinks that Peters may eventualky be able to challenge Zelezny's WR.

                        Yes, I was thinking that after those 3 throws over 90m. It's interesting that the Europeans are no longer dominating the Javelin. I don't know what the story is with Vetter. I thought he would be the one to take Zelezny's record.
