    Al-Hebshi's series:

    3. Al-Hebshi (Sau) 69-4 (21.13) NR (59‑9¾, 64-8¾, 69-4 NR, 63-2¾) (18.23, 19.73, 21.13, 19.27) (PR coming in 67‑7½/20.61);

    A 1-meter misread, or he caught the perfect spin? (I'm assuming he's a spinner)

    Tilastopaja has Al-Hebshi listed as being 1.80 tall and weighing 83kg ( 5-11, 183lbs). If that's the case that would be more unbelievable then the 21.13.

    It would mean the guy is about as big as Walter Dix :shock:

    Correct!

    They never showed Majewski during the coverage, even though he finished second with 21.22 - the second best result of his career.

    Things happen. Remember Marco Verni?

    OK, they just showed Al-H's series through four throws, and they showed the 21.13, but none of the other three throws was over 20m, and looking at his fourth throw, I find it hard to believe that he could have thrown 21m. But there's no doubt that the throw that immediately preceded the graphic that showed the 21.13 was over the 21m mark.

    OK, so the other throw wasn't Hoffa's.

    Now I don't know what to think.

    And he hasn't gone over 20 meters since then!

    I saw the same thing and wondered the same thing. It looked as if the graphic that showed that mark immediately followed a throw by what looked like Hoffa. (Yes, I know what Hoffa looks like, but it was a long camera shot and it was up on the screen only for a moment.)

    I, too, find it hard to believe that Al Habshi threw that far.

    That's what they just showed on tv - but it's surely not possible :shock:

    Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or did Al-Hebshi just put in a 21.13 AR?
