    Or is there a chance they gave her a free pass already? The Russian federation has certainly done that in the past.

    And the timetable is quite friendly for an 8/15 double.
    Note that there was a tie for 3rd in the 800.

    I hope the officials have planned for an administrative run-off.

    They're replaying yesterday's action on channel 6 here in Moscow, and I've been watching with my girlfriend. The men's 800 came on and I launched into a long spiel about Borzakovskiy's "Silky Sullivan" routine, always running from the back. So naturally he goes and makes a liar outta me - front running the whole way. :? I don't know if this represents a new philosophy on his part, of if it just indicates the low quality of the other Russian men... but it sure made me look foolish. :lol:

    Anna Chicherova is back! She took the HJ win with 2.00. Yelena Slesarenko is improving, too - she was second with 1.96, beating Svetlana Shkolina on countback.

    Anna Avdeyeva. Now that really came out of nowhere. It beats her PB by about a meter, and her SB by over 2 meters :!:

    Yelena Sokolova won the LJ with 6.92 PB.

    I concur. I still think the board rules are used selectively.
    Of course they are. But it's still the only T&F forum where you get some actual news.

    Not that I question your decision - that post was clearly in breach of the rules. But I see unfair treatment here - why does everyone get away with saying the same thing about Krivoshapka as Scoe said about VBH???
