    Sector is there for a reason, remember Salim Sdiri incident.. Or perhaps we should remove safety nets in hammer.
    My impression is this was a clear FOUL an it's a disgrace for the organizers that sector was marked only to 90m line. Though I would like to see Yego's regular 91 m soon cause this most likely wasn't.

    That was in Ostrava; his Rome throw was OK.

    Quick question: how accurately are these sectors measured and marked in the first place? The difference between a sector angle of 28.96° (what it should be) and a sector angle of 28.86° is about 15 cm that far out, and the sector line didn't appear 100% straight.

    How can it be out of a sector that was only marked upto the 90m line? They had to manually extend the sector to make the decision and i guess that manual extension was a good enough reason for a protest and reversal.

    The IAAF report by Jon Mulkeen only says that the judges reversed their decision 20 minutes after the end of the meet. To me it looked out, but I only had a small screen view of a few fleeting seconds.

    Just checked the results again, and it looks like Yego won an appeal.
    91.39/299-10!

    Yego is such an amazing story. One of these days I wouldn't be surprised to see a 93m throw from him!

    Walcott also had a big out-of-sector throw, though it was so far out it was hard to tell how big it was even by eyeballing. 85+ at any rate; very impressive series for him.
