    Yarisley Collado wins the discus with a throw of 64.10m - Barrios two metres behind. Some more good early season throwing from the Cubans.

        The Cuban men continue their extraordinary form in the TJ, with Girat going out to 17.61m and passing the remaining five attempts; Copello goes out to 17.41m on 2nd and passes at rest and Betanzos goes out to 17.40m.

            No electronic timing on the first two? I don't believe they finished in 9,90 and 10,10, respectively.

              Yes, it's looking a bit dodgy from the results; they're very evenly timed!

                Actually into a 1.7 headwind. :wink:

                And Girat 17.61 into a 1.1 wind.

                  Good point!

                  Menendez isn't exactly setting the Javelin world alight in the early stages of 2009, beaten into 2nd by her fellow Cuban Cruz, with a rather miserable 56.69m.

                    Is it "Girat" or "Giralt"?

                    Wikipedia lists him under both spellings, with no further explanation. In various results, he's listed as:

                    Arnie David Girat
                    Arnie David Giralt
                    David Girat Rivero
                    David Giralt Rivero

                    :?:

                        I read the iaaf bio before I posted. He's listed as "Giralt" there; nothing explaining the various permutations of his name.

                          He's listed only as David Giralt in that feature article (not a bio). The bio lists his full name, Girat, Arnie David.

                            Isn't that what I said? I'm just wondering if there is a "correct" version, and why there seems to be so many variations.

                            edit: I did read both the bio and article. lol, the iaaf doesn't even know what to call him!

                              Arnie David Giralt (listed on Cuban pages as well as results on DLV and even here in SE).
