    Barrios has put together yet another good solid season - good enough to get T&FN's nod for #1 over Trafton?

  • #2
    She's 2-1 vs. Trafton this year, and both times she beat her by over 2 meters. Barrios also had more of a season on the international circuit, with good results (though she did lose a couple of competitions). It's not a completely obvious one, but yes, I would put the Cuban in first.

      Apparently T&FN didn't agree with us. Oh well, they don't have our expertise so they can be forgiven. :wink:

        Couple of questions - does anyone actually recall Yatchenko throwing 67m in June and is she the oldest world-leader in any events (she's 43 now).

          Recall in what sense? It happened in an obscure meet in Belarus, so I doubt if anyone here actually saw it. But it does show up on both the IAAF and Tila lists, so it presumably did happen.

            When I was doing the Olympic preview for Athletics Weekly, I think I wrote the preview for the women's discus and I don't remember seeing that mark prior to the Olympics and suddenly, it's just popped up out of nowhere. As far as I knew, Pishchalnikova was the world-leader come Beijing.

              Belarusian marks showing up later in the year is by no means uncommon.

                Same here. Incidentally, the meet wasn't all that obscure. IAAF even had an article on it, and strangely enough there's no mention there of women's discus even being contested, let alone of Yatchenko's monster mark. http://iaaf.org/news/kind=100/newsid=45557.html

                Men's discus is mentioned, and the results don't hint at the sort of helping gale a 67.89 could just be possible for Yatchenko in.
