    Nope. While it was a minor miracle that she made the final, her performance in the final was sub-standard. Her best throw was only around 51 meters and she finished 12th of 12. I'm happy she had the opportunity to compete in a WC final; she's young and there's a lot to build upon.

    She also said 70m was a still a goal, but retiring with a world championship under your belt is the best way to go out. She has also had injury problems in the past, even this week and at age 37 you can't ask for more.

    She didn't make the 1990 WJC team, I'm not sure where else she could have represented her country that year.
    Who knows- the GDR often liked a junior international meet...maybe there. I have no evidence, just a thought...

    Besides, didn't she represent the GDR at Volleyball? There you go, that counts :lol:

    That was my initial thought, but after checking it, I think she didn't.

    Now Germany has a least one WC gold medal in every throwing event, except men's shot put.

    Long time coming... At 37, after a string of minor medals, she finally won a global title! And to do this in front of her home audience... I have to say I'm really happy for her. She deserved it just for her persistance.
