      Well in Gotizs
      1 Michael Schrader GER 8522 (Not on WC team)
      2 Trey Hardee USA 8516
      3 Pascal Behrenbruch GER 8374
      4 Roman Šebrle CZE 8348
      5 Oleksiy Kasyanov UKR 8286
      6 Norman Müller GER 8272

      European Cup
      1 Andrei Krauchanka BLR 8336
      2 Aleksandr Pogorelov RUS 8313
      3 Oleksiy Kasyanov UKR 8245
      4 Romain Barras FRA 8209

      While the Cubans
      in March
      8415 Leonel Suárez over
      8365 Yordani García

      Garcia has since won two other meets 8496 in May and 8348 in June, while
      Suarez just scored 8654 in early July in cuba.

      So it looks to be a real competitive event this year with a lot of athletes in the 8400-8700 range. Should be fun. Shows how little this event gets covered.

          Krauchanka for his first major title over Suarez and old lion Sebrle for bronze.

              Is Schrader definitely out? He's not on list or german entries. Injured?

                Not on the Provisional list means definitely not going. As I don't think IAAF accepts late entries. That's why some teams have 4 or even 5 in an event as countries are allowed alternates.

                  The incredible Zeke (Frank Zarnowski) has done it again.... check out his many-page guide to the World Champs. (whence our picks)

                    The USA Trials really did a great job this year of getting as many medal contenders as possible off the team--Fountain, Clay, and Pappas in one year is outstanding even for our Trials.

                    I would not have thought Pappas to be a contender except he was well over 8500 last week.

                      What gives you the idea that the US champs "got Pappas off the team"? He wasn't even there.

                        The point being that the system of ``top-three at the trials''
                        got him off the team---not the individual trials, per se.

                          Good start for Hardee with 10.45 in the 100. Excellent PB for Yordani Garcia, who ran 10.60. Suarez, on the other hand, was well off his best at 11.13. Sebrle did pretty much as expected with 11.16. Krauchanka disappointed me a bit with 11.18.

                          Maurice Smith is injured and out.

                            Is Suarez injured too ? Only 6.76m after two attempts and if he doesn't improve that mark by at at least 50cm, he is already out of the medal race after two events.

                              Suarez is now in trouble. 6.76 in round one of the LJ, followed by a foul.

                              Other top guys are jumping pretty well. Hardee 7.80 PB, Sebrle also 7.80, Krauchanka 7.62. Garcia has one foul so far.
