    It's not out of the question. Howard can medal.
    Apart from Vlasic and Friedrich it is pretty much open. Howard is in the mix with Beitia, Di Martino, Shkolina, Aitova and Chicherova.

    On the men's side Manson is as usual the joker in the deck. He can still medal even if I doubt it. Too early to write him off. Still only 25. Harris is probably past his prime. He could always compete well.
    If someone would light a fire under Moffatt I think he could surprise the Europeans as well.
    I know you love Moffat, but it may not happen. I feel the same way about a number of highly endowed jumpers but that's the difference between elite jumpers and those that remain in the doldrums.
    Okay thanks Dietmar he remains untapped potential.

    Tall order.
    Williams and Howard could, but only if they're on their A game...
    And in Williams case if he had made the trials...
    That was trick post to see who was paying attention!

    ops: ops: ops: ops: ops:

    yes, Kajsa Bergqvist was the only top-jumper who came back even better after a serious achilles injury in 2004
    Kajsa's achilles injury was to her non jumping leg.

    Even with her, the statement can be disputed: It is true that she had a greater
    consistency after her come-back, but I do not think that her maximal ability
    improved (2.08i notwithstanding). Notably, she had her 2.06 PB shortly before
    the injury, and could have gone heigher yet in Athens (or the following season).

    Edit: I am getting old and confused. 2.06 was in 2003
    followed by minor injuries, tendon in 2004.
