    Why isn't Murofushi on this list? While he hasn't exactly had a tremendous year, a Bronze in Beijing is nothing to sneeze at (not forgetting Gold in Athens), and I don't expect him to medal, but out of the top 10?

        Thanks. I guess http://www.kojimurofushi.net/en/schedule/index.html isn't very up to date.

          No comments during qualification here... Ziólkowski looked good and might be a marginal favorite for the 3rd medal now. Litvinov was also very convincing but he'd almost certainly have to PB for a medal. Shayunou, Sokolovs, Rubanko and, sadly, Karjalainen went out. Pity he's such a useless morning competitor Bronze could be really cheap here.

            Wow, Belarussian hammer throwing doesn't look to good after a couple of positives and Shayunou's flop today :shock: . Rubanko and Sokolovs are other noticeable casualties while the old warhorse Ziolkowski knows how to impress when it matters, not to mention young Litwinow who coolly and impressively smashed the qualifier in his first throw.

                I believe Litvinov has dual citizenship, but cannot remember whether the other is Russian or Belorus.....

                The other thing was that Jake Freeman was very close to qualifying, would have been good to see..

                Think the women will be much tougher

                  Very slow start to the final - Pars and Kozmus both in the 75s in the first round. I hope the competition takes off at some point.

                  ZióÅ‚kowski now goes into the lead with 77.44. That's a bit better, but still not great.

                    Kozmus 79.74 in round 2. That's a bit more like it.
                    Foul for Pars on his second throw. He may need to improve in his next attempt just to make the top 8.

                      79.30 SB for ZióÅ‚kowski. In this competition this throw could well suffice for a medal.

                        It seems like most are just trying to get into the Top 8 and are not going all out which might backfire.

                          Pars only 5th at the top of the 3d round. Could be trouble!!!

                            Pars might not even be amongst those eight.

                              Another foul for Pars. He's in 5th right now, but all of these guys are capable of overtaking him...
