    Considering the careers of e.g. Edwards and Saneyev, I suspect
    that it is a question of whether he remains injury free and
    motivated.

    If not, what bothers me, as a fan, more than the missed
    medal opportunities, is that he never got that pesky 18m.

    We can always hope but I am beginning to doubt it. Will he even compete more this year?

    So do we have any definitive word on his plans for the WC? (as in, whether or not he's going to go)
    After today's NC's in Malmö, Olsson has decided to forego competing at the World Champs. He got in a clean jump during the first round (16.72m), intentionally fouled the second and couldn't get in a third due to rain.

    The result there will likely decide.
    Talking to Yannick on Thursday I got the impression it was less likely that he would compete in Berlin.

    And at the same time that we get 11 jumps over 17 with some key players absent (and in a venue thaqt was not providing a lot of top marks in most disciplines.

    You are overposting...watch out for carpal tunnel syndrome!

    You would really hate to miss the Worlds! :wink:


    (I don't know much about how many times Olsson competed etc. I just feel bad for him).

    Actually, there is something almost artistic about it: He makes three posts,
    his post count lands at 123 (at the time I am writing)---and the thread deals
    with the triple jump.

    (His point, BTW, is not without merit.)

    He has had just about the worst luck any athlete could have.

    I would love to see him at Worlds.
    I agree to disagree. I am not sure over competing in TJ and then getting injured can be considered bad luck.....
    Nobody ever even dare to compete that many times in those good seasons....and he pays the price.... Not really impressed with his and his coach common sense.
