      Pretty ordinary throwing - only 8 even at 62. Perkovic started at 58.95! She is not such a shoo-in any more, I think.

        Perkovic nailed her second throw. She will be just fine. The Cubans look pretty potent, too. Love watching Perez, extremely athletic.

            TBH, I can't recall too many championship qualifying round with higher standard than this.

            One poor throw and suddenly she's demoted from her role as the overwhelming favorite? Come on. The thing that makes her a true champion is that she can nearly always respond to a challenge. I can recall many competitions when she struggled and then came through to win with one of her last throws.

              Her first throw was poor (a warm up), her second was serious. That's all she needed to qualify.

                You misunderstand. I think the Cubans are a big threat now, with Caballero throwing long but out of sector and Perez beating her in Paris. My comment had nothing to do with her 58.95 first throw.

                  It sure sounded that way. If that wasn't the intention, fair enough, though I still disagree. Perkovic has always showed her best throwing in majors. The Cubans just can't match that, notwithstanding a one-off 70 meter throw by Caballero. Perkovic may not be as strong a favorite as Włodarczyk and Fajdek, but still, in my mind, a very, very strong one.

                    I watched every throw in the Lausanne DL, and I was very impressed by the Cubans, Perez winning and Caballero, although not beating Perkovic, having a couple of monster throws out of sector. She has a great upside. Perkovic should be considered the favorite, if you must name one, but I wouldn't give her one of those "A's".

                          Dani Samuels into her 4th straight World Champs final... But has finished 10th in the last two (after her win as a 21 year old in 2009). Here's hoping she can climb back up to the podium. She's still only 27, yet is one champs away from tying the Aussie record for most appearances (she's on 5)... Given how long WDTers tend to last, she could end up making 8 or 9 WC finals in her career...

                            Seriously, as much as i would love for one of them to medal, they would need one of the Cubans to have a bad day. Perkovic and the two Cubans should throw over 66m and none of the Germans have done that all year long.

                              I'd agree with Powell on Perkovich being still a favourite but her shape has not been that great in recent meetings. Her last three meetings have been: 67.23 67.06 66.80 (and this one was part of a bad series). But last year she was coming from pretty the same series (even worst maybe) and unleashed a MASSIVE 71m throw. But if Caballero can keep her throws into the sector she can be a strong contender. The germans are a bit behind, I'd say for the podium Perkovich + two cubans.
