                Noted a Matti Viren on the Oslo startlists, and of course my Finnish eyebrows were immediately raised. An heir, perhaps?

                    Nice enough javelin comp. Kovals won with 82.47 SB (and a very solid series); Janik second with 81.56 and Pyatnytsya third with the first two 80+ (and first 81+) efforts of his career, ahead of new US champ Hill.

                      Any elite talent to him? Or is he less a Viren and more another Matti V, as in Valimaki?

                        Hurts to say, but no, I don't think he has elite talent (and he started training too late in any case). I think he has a decent chance of eventually breaking into our national elite but alas, that tells more about the current poor state of middle-to-longish-distance track running in Finland than about his talent.
