    Re: 2012OT mJT—top finish may not mean much?

    "Top finish may not mean much?"

    [I have no intention of turning this into an appendix of the "USA Team Selection Sux" debate, the event deserves the focus here, but . . . ]

    Exhibit A of why "first-three-past-the-post" is such a canard, which, to my way of thinking, is a good thing. Send the 'most qualified' (whatever that may mean).

    Now, that said, don't we all miss Bro Breaux more than ever? We've got some good up-and-comers, but no already-theres. Depending on the prevailing winds, the Marks Snobs are at least looking for some PRs, pls.

      The wind conditions in Eugene are a major factor in distances achieved. Have the organisors allowed this time for the wind? In 2008 the JT was held in the opposite direction from the the 100m and 110h. If the wind is strongly in favour of the sprints it will kill the JT distances. This applies to all 4 of the JT events, and I do hope the direction can be set to help the athletes as much as possible [the crowd will enjoy greater distances too]

        the javelin in Hayward can only go one way, and that means (99% of the time) that there will be a headwind. Which as I understand spear mechanics was great back in the day when the floater javelins were in play, but not so much with the modern one.

        Having said that, Pre had "normal" headwinds and the pros put up decent numbers.

                Hostetler: 1st throw, pulled through the shaft so hard that the jav broke in mid-air with only the grip holding it together. Still landed at about 60m. Will get a replacement throw.

                  Riley Dolezal finished 17th in the qual with a 3rd round best of 70.78 (232-2).

                  Narrow foot foul on his first throw, which was about 76.00 and would have placed about 7th or 8th.

                    I take it they're using USATF-supplied implements here?

                    Personal implements that break in mid-air don't usually merit a replacement throw.

                      Humphreys get really close to the "A" with 81.86. Maybe he can have a monster 6th throw.

                        14cm from making the team. That has got to be really frustrating.

                          Close but no cigar that is why u can't expect to get the standard at the trials especially when the conditions arent that favorable

                            One of the throwers also threw the javelin into the pole vault area while the event was going on.

                              So 3rd, 4th and 5th now go??

                              OK, this is one instance where I think the 'first past the post' ethos should kick in. All 3 (now) Olympians were beaten (and in this instance by a guy who had 4 throws better than any be said trio).

                              Big last gasp effort from Crouser... close to 3m PR?
