    For some people Trafton gold on OG was a "lucky" day (I was one of them). This year Trafton confirm she is one of bests DThrowers. I have no doubts she is a candidate to medal, but I don´t think she is the clear favorite besides she is the world leader.
    I, too, was of the 'lucky' assessment at the Games. However, systematically since it seems less and less to have had a large luck component and more and more like her skill/ability component was bigger than I thought before.

    Trafton was obvious, between Breisch, Pierson, Powell and Thurmond was not easy to pick. For WC Trafton is a candidate to medal.
    Well, saying that the an uninjured Olympic Gold medalist with the year's leading mark is a candidate for a medal is a not really going out on much of a limb (as in, still on the tree trunk :wink: ).

    Yes, the real question was the other members of the team; however, it WAS her first title, including last year when she was World #1/OG Gold.

    How is our HS JT Hannah doing these days. Did she make the top-10 list at 14; will she make it by 18 [was there an injury?]?
    Torn ACL this year. Finished 5th at Nike Outdoor Nationals last weekend.

    unless one wants to think of Will Clay as "really" still a prep!

    dj writing on trig's machine:

    I think the only prep who could challenge Jelmini with a U.S. Ranking of top-8 finish here would be Marquise Goodwin in the mLJ.

    Nice effort by Jelmini in 7th, near her recent HSR of 190.
