    Thorkildsen takes an early lead with 86.29, continuing with the good form we saw at Beijing... Korotkov currently second.

      Jarvenpaa just went into the lead with 86.45, and the other Tero isn't too far behind with 85.52.

        Thorkildsen replies with a 90.28, and looks almost bored as if that's nothing special.

          Pitkämäki grabs second after reaching 87.25 with his fifth through the exciting and interesting experiment of Not Throwing Quite That Ridiculously High...

            With his last throw, Vasilevskis finally hits one halfway right, reaching a "SB" of 85.97 and pushing the "male Abakumova" Ilya Korotkov back to 5th place.

              Thorkildsen series was much better than in the Olympic final. He backed up his 90.28 with 89.05 and 88.15.

                Which is not to say that his OG series was bad...

                Järvenpää apparently sustained some lower body injury in the second throw which resulted in skipping the last four, don't know much yet...

                  Tero Pitkämäki about the competition:
                  My technique wasn't quite so horrible this time. A bit more improvement there and I'll be able to challenge Andreas at Brussel and Stuttgart. I got four "ok" throws that, instead of just scaling the heights, actually went forward a bit. But the supporting leg still didn't do its proper job.
                  Still no further news about Järvenpää but nothing I've heard suggests he won't be throwing at the FIN vs. SWE dual match tomorrow. Hopefully he was just saving himself for that.
