    Nerius

    What an end to a long career, she is the only athlete who also competed in Stuttgart in 1993.

    Wow. Nerius' win and the crowd reaction reminds me of Tina Lillak's win in Helsinki 1983.

    Steffi Nerius: perfect example of getting one's act together when it really counts. On paper, Spotakova, Abakumova and Obergföll are all better than her. But with one attempt left Nerius is still leading.

    Russia should only send the racewalkers to the world champ

    Abakumova is a joke. :roll: :lol:

    Anyone know if Yurkovich made the final three throws?

    I guess Abakumova knew what she was doing (?), as third-round 65.39 moved her to 2nd temporarily.

    And first American to make WC or OG final since Donna Mayhew, 12th in 1992 OG in Barcelona.

    Abakumova just walked out on a second-round improvement that was clearly 64 meters. Her first round was 63.01, which had her 5th at the end of that round, and her foul would have mode her past Menendez, who is 4th at 63.11.

    Monica Stoian 64.51m - big PB!

    Then Steffi Nerius goes over 65m!

    67.30m!
