    1/ Adams
    2/ Ostapchuck
    3/ Jill Camarena?Williams

    and Jill has been throwing very well this year, she could finish a lot better than third.

      Either Adams or Ostapchuk finishing as low as 3 would a genuine shock... Neither will throw less than 20.50m...

        but could Jill throw 20.51 ...and Ostapchuck has had the occasional disaster in big meets, the 2004 OG and either 2008 or 2009 where she struggled ..

          Yes, Camarena finishing higher than third would be a big shock. And I do agree with T&FN's assessment that Gong is the no. 3 candidate for the bronze, though not by much.

            Not a single comment after the qualifying round? And a high-quality qualifying it was, with 13 women over the automatic Q:

            1 Valerie Adams NZL 19.79 Q
            2 Lijiao Gong CHN 19.21 Q
            3 Christina Schwanitz 19.20 Q SB
            4 Nadzeya Ostapchuk BLR 19.11 Q
            5 Jillian Camarena-Williams USA 19.09 Q
            6 Anna Omarova RUS 19.03 Q
            7 Cleopatra Borel-Brown TRI 18.95 Q
            8 Anna Avdeeva RUS 18.92 Q
            9 Yevgeniya Kolodko RUS 18.90 Q
            10 Natallia Mikhnevich BLR 18.88 Q
            11 Michelle Carter USA 18.85 Q
            12 Nadine Kleinert GER 18.75 Q
            13 Ling Li CHN 18.67 Q
            (Misleidys Gonzalez and Chiara Rosa were the only noteworthy non-qualifiers)

            I'm actually very excited about today's final. With all 13 women having thrown over 19 meters this year, this could be the best women's SP competition in ages.
            It'll be interesting to see whether Nadine Kleinert can continue her streak. She's made the top 8 in every single major championship (OG, WC and EC) since 1997. If she can do it in Daegu, this will be her 15th in a row :shock:

              WOW, that is stunning!!

              Just had a look at her record:
              3 silvers and a bronze at WCs
              1 silver at OG
              no medals at EC, but ridiculously consistent (6th, 6th, 6th, 7th)

                Amazingly, though, Kleinert's streak is not the longest or best among current athletes. Virgilijus Alekna has finished in the top 5 in all majors since 1996 :!:

                    Apparently they changed that attempt to a foul.

                      This is becoming a great competition, Adams 20.72 in the 4th, then Ostapchuk 20.05 in the 5th, Camarena-Williams 20.02 in the 4th and Gong 19.97 in the 5th!

                      The places may yet change in the 6th round

                        no improvement for JCW in the final round but she wins first U.S. medal ever.
