    Should not moan about the coverage, but seriously I thought we had the best coverage in the world with Dave Culbert various members of the and coaching staff in the commentry box, and that was before 2008 when we had our best performance siince 1968.

    After that what happens we get, the BBC feed spiced up with our own interviews (not bad) but a big let down on what it was....very sad..

    I knew Heidler had done well as when they did the Hooker interview, I could see a fullish stadium with Betty and Mascot doing the rounds, really enjoying the crowd..

    [quote="Terry Gibbs"]Our TV coverage had Heidler and the winner in the first three rounds then nothing as every time they switched to Hammer we were doing interviews with Hooker and Mitchell. By the end of the broadcast I had no idea who had one. quote]

    you got more than we did. NBC showed the WR throw, and that was it.

    The bad news is that WÅ‚odarczyk's injury is worse than initially thought. It is now believed she will have to miss the rest of the season and undergo surgery :?

    The good news is she may go back to Czesław Cybulski, the coach whom she left shortly before the WCh. He may not be the easiest person to work with, but if he took her from 63 meters to 77.96 in 3 years, he was obviously doing something right.

    Sanctimonious attitude does not suit you. That was 4 years ago. She sat out 2 years. Let's not start this "life ban" nonsense again.
    Well I'm sorry but I get absolutely no pleasure in watching people like Hrasnova and Lysenko compete without an ounce of guilt.

    But she must be happy it's not last year, when the exchange rate was just 2 zloty to a dollar.

    Can anyone pull off a DVD copy for me, have other comps to trade or will happily pay cash...what a comp to get squeezed out of..

    Her post-event "victory" lap was a delight. The crowd ate her up.

    BTW Kathrin Klaas had a 75+ in quali that was just BARELY a foul (toe just touched edge). Great PB in final.

    And loved watching Betty Heidler have so much fun! She used to be such a bundle of nerves. In this competition, even though she had a huge (WR) mountain to climb, she was smiling at the camera before every throw, and really enjoying each result.

    She'll probably feel $160k is enough of a compensation for the injury
    thats a lot of zloty :-)
