    Evora with 17.44 in round one of qualifying. Nobody else has got the automatic Q so far. Idowu is next best with 17.10.

      Did I hear that correctly? Somebody is competing for Nigeria who didn't have to? He went the other way? Blimey. That's a first.

        The Chinese have stepped up in this event. Yanxi Li almost matching his female teammate's efforts from yesterday's qualifying. Look like going through as #3 from qualifying.

        Looks like we're seeing the much vaunted breakthroughs many of us expected in their home Olympics last year.

          From form chart only Rouhlac and Schembri miss.

          Tamgho looked to pull up very sore, but got through.

              I see noone to fight Evora. He looks like beeing capable of more than his windy 17,82m this year.
              If Idowu will bring his 17,50m+ the bronze will be left for the best out of a bunch of guys.

                  Never mind the Americans.

                  What's up with the Cubans? Yoandris Betanzos is out and Alexis Copello only just squeezes through. Arnie David Girat had to leave it to the last round too.

                    I'm going to stick my neck out and say Yanxi Li for the Gold! Purely because that was the most beautiful triple jump I have ever seen.

                      I agree, he had really great technique and landing. Idowu should sign up for a few lessons with him.

                          is evora holding back speed? i thought it was because of qualification with great form. but he looks not that fast today.
