  • CWG: Men's SP

    Tom Walsh hit 21.24 (69-8.25??) in the Q.
    (Jacko Gill got just 19.64.)

    So it looks to me like Walsh improved his own New Zealand National Record, AND got the CWG record as well....beating the 2010 mark of Dylan Armstrong!!

    And that's just in the Qualifying round!!

    Two Jamaicans into the final too, with Odane Richards qualifying automatically with 20.24....
    My heart is still in the Caribbean....

      I have been thinking this the entire meet: The Jamaican presence in the 100/200 is not what we might expect; in contrast the Jamaican presence elsewhere, especially well away from the 100/200 is much more in evidence than I remember in the past, and that is a good thing.

        Jacko 19.54 as 5th qualifier on his first throw. Fouled throws 2 and 3. Tom Walsh only needed his first throw. Hoping he will go at least 21.34 tomorrow.

          Assuming Dylan Armstrong is injured? Hasn't competed this year.

              Yes, out for the year. Persistent elbow problem. "Loaded with arthritis" he said. Will have surgery very soon. Will definitely be back in 2015.

                In reality Jacko didn't foul his other two attempts... he deliberately annulled them by stepping outside the ring because they were shorter than his first attempt. In these last two years he became bigger but now his technique looks a bit sluggish to me. I can see him throwing 20m in the final, but nothing more. Walsh will win without doubts, and I do expect also a 21.50 from him in the final.

                  And even better that Odayne Richards took home gold for Jamaica with 21.61....

                    What a superb throw from Richards. Walsh threw up to his best but Richards - wow! A massive 50cm PR.
                    Jacko? Don't know what to say. From 20.70 just 3 weeks ago to 18.05 which he could do when he was 15 years old.
