        Hope she will recover from minor knee problem well and run as fast as possible.

          It's really a shame she couldn't do that last 800m in Götzis and end her heptathlon career with a nice NR.

            It is indeed a shame,if not she will get 6650-6700p around,but this may not be her last heptathlon,and more importantly,she had better not do a risk try.

              If she has a subpar World Champs, will she reconsider?

                yeah, it would have been nice for her to notch up a big score/NR before switching. Even better to get a gold medal. There may be a few in the 6700-6800 range come Worlds time.

                  Multi-events athletes don't get any respect these days in the USA. Eaton should be a household name. We used to have JJK and uh, you know.

                        Possible. She already said that choice was only until Rio...
