    Does anyone know of a reason for the low throws (and not the old drug testing - don't need to know). Guys like Chartfrieg, Pars, Esser are long term big meet campaigners, but were off. Was it very cold, slick circle any ideas ?????

    Next, we may have had a glimpse of the future, especially if young Litvinov does not have to chase 84m throws. Looked younger than 23, should get stronger (in hammer).

    If we are now living with 78m gets medals, Jake Freeman and Walter Henning, look much more promising (and AG Kruger )

    And of course Dwight was in fine form again, misstating the size of the hammer ring.

    If someone would have told me two weeks ago that Germany gets 5-6 in this final I'd taken it without asking. But after this awful competition, it's a pity Esser couldn't pull it together, he was robbed by Annus, Tikhon and Devyatovsky some place and medal in previous years and now it's at discount level and he can't grab it.
    That must be the nadir of the whole WC.

    Well, with that final throw Kozmus showed he was a deserving winner. 80.84 SB.

    Great silver for ZióÅ‚kowski, who maintained the trend of medalling in every other edition of the WCh and completes the set. He already had a gold from 2001 and bronze from 2005.

    Overall, though, the competition was of an even lower standard than expected. 78.09 is the shortest medal-winning distance since Montreal, I believe (excluding LA 1984).

    Pars out of the medals :!: :shock: Zagornyi overtakes him in the final round with 78.09.

    73.72 making the top 8 in the WCh final... That's pretty pathetic, TBH.

    Pars is safe, but Vizzoni and Charfreitag are both out.

    Litvinov now up to 75.88m, that should be enough to get in.
