    Sorry, I had a bunch of tabs open and I thought I had the right one.

    As penance, I've booked a flight to Helsinki to accept a fish slapping.

    That's a real thing, right?

    Photo of Junnila at Tampere.

    She has progressed from 1.83 as a junior in 2017, to 1.92 last year and now 1.95.

    I also believe her mother is Ringa Ropo-Junilla who still holds the Finnish LJ record with a 6.85 (+0.8) set back in 1990. Not a bad family collection.

    Ah, hooray! At last! (I forgot there was heats today - I tuned in to the stream late.)

    At La Chaux-de-Fonds another sub-13 for Reetta Hurske BUT ... ... another illegal wind!

    (+3.1m/s)
    1 Luminosa Bogliolo (ITA) 12.76w
    ...
    4 Nooralotta Neziri 12.84w
    5 Reetta Hurske 12.86w

    Poor lass. It seems like the wind follows her everywhere in her quest to become Finland's 3rd sub-13 athlete.

    If you want to cool down in the hot weather just go and stand behind Reetta Hurske! There's bound to be a breeze.

    Still, those times with that wind shows that they should be able to do it wind legal as well and probably more than once.

    If that happens, it actually seems to put Finland in elite company because there only seems to be 6-8 countries with multiple athletes under 13 in the same season.

    I found this surprising but countries that I though for sure would have done it had great hurdlers whose careers don't overlap, or if they did, there's only 2 of them, with a big gulf to third.

    Unfortunately, I can't prove it at the moment because the IAAF list stops at 12.95, so there's probably a few more that might squeeze into that last .05s.
    The UK has had 14 women under 13 but many of those only barely or on only 1 or 2 occasions. I think the only time we had 2 regularly under 13 in the same season was the Ofili sisters about 4 years ago.

    Matilda Bogdanoff seemed on pace for a really fast time in the heats until she crashed badly, I hope she's okay.

    Once Siciarz learns how to start properly, she'll be great. As of now, she may get a good one once every 10 races. With a decent start in the final today, she would have been sub-12.7. Granted, it would still be wind-aided, but not by much. And at her height, tailwind probably doesn't help much, if at all.
