          She really likes Berlin, that's her second WR in the olympic stadium, first one was in 2009. And i think she'll go over 80m this year if she continues to throw.

                Any live stats available for Berlin? The link on the T&FN homepage just shows startlists.

                    Thanks for that video! I loved the response of the French commentator!

                      A great GREAT mark, but Women's Hammer records are fairly common, comparatively speaking.

                      For example, Sandra Perkovic, however dominant she's been in the DT, she's still almost 20 feet short of the WR!!

                      Valerie Adams, who's won some 55 (??) meets in a row, is still about 5 feet short of the SP WR.

                      No one's approached JJK's Hept WR!!

                      With all due respect to Ms Wlodarczyk, her fantastic WR should be seen in that context!!

                      But all that said, I see an 80 meter throw right around the corner!
                      (And there's at least 2 or 3 women (Wlodarczyk, Heidler, Lysenko and.....??) who could reach that mark!!)

                        Well I think most people here are aware of that. Women's Hammer is still a young event, about the same age as Women's Pole Vault... Therefore these WR are more breakable. If wHT was practiced in the 80s we can imagine.

                          Nobody is saying the HT record was as hard to break as, say the DT mark. But even judging by the standard of the last few years, how many women set really exceptional marks this year? Perkovic, certainly, then Ibarguen (although that was a bit of a one-off), and Obiri (in a non-Olympic event), that's pretty much it.

                            This is a monstrous mark! Period! After all , we can't know how long it will last.

                              If they had wHT in the 80s, the WR would be somewhere between 85 and 88m and would be held by some east german freak. So we should be glad Wlodarczyk, Heidler and others have realistic marks to chase and not diminish their achievements.
