    nothing to say, just setting up a thread ahead of time

    Pentathlon has got a interesting field, some really strong athletes, some middle of the pack one's, some up and comers. Interested to see what happens with Laura Ikauniece, she was one of the very best in the world before her injury. she's just got a pb in the 60m hurdles in the first event so she looks in good form there.

      KJT gets over 1.96!

      A few other women going great, too. World pentathlon leader Solene Ndama jumped 1.78, adding 6 cm to her PB. Niamh Emerson equalled her best at 1.87. Ikauniece, Dadic and Shukh were all solid with 1.84.

        13.15 absolute PB for KJT. This could be a great score.

          If she hits a good LJ--say 6.60 or better---then run about 2:08 to 2:10 for the 800, she could break the World Record!!
          Yes?

            Emerson is going very well. Personal bests in all events, certainly rising to the occasion in a home champ. And quite a few of the medal contenders not hitting their marks quite yet, she's not out for the running for a medal. Her LJ isn't as good as the others she's fighting for a medal with but a few extra cm's from her and another underperformance from others and anything can happen.

            Whatever happens she's put in a good account of herself so far and really embraced the occasion and being able to perform in front of her home crowd.

              With a 6.60, she'd need to run below 2:08.7, which may be too much to ask. She really needs a 6.70+

              After 3 events, she's 48 up on her PB from 2015, but on that occasion she jumped 6.89.

                Yeah, Emerson has been doing great so far. But a few of the others are going well, too. Ndama could be up for another PB, Vetter and Ikauniece are solid as well.

                  Where exactly have they hidden the running totals for the pentathlon.

                    You need to official reports and download the pdf. Here are the standings after 3 events.

                      i'm quite interested in Ikauniece's progress after coming back from injury. I didn't see all of the high jump, but was she jumping off her other leg? I thought she did quite good in the HJ from what I saw, 1.84 for her is good. Her shot put wasn't great, but she's always had a relatively weak shot considering how good her javelin is.

                      Ndama looks raw but the real deal. Dadic has been quite a bit down from where I expected her to be, so she's the one who's probably underperformed the most of the main contenders. She's not been bad in any event really although the shot wasn't good by her standards, but she's given away points across the board. They are all quite tightly packed in the fight for silver and bronze.

                      Could end up very compressed after the LJ for the bronze. Might be a 800m that has a decent impact on the result.

                        Anouk Vetter is a DNS in the Pent LJ!

                        Also, no mark yet for KJT---and she's the only one without a mark so far!

                          6.53 for KJT in round 2. Her win is now safe, so she can go for a big one on her final attempt.

                            Great pressure jump for Emerson. 6.29 PB in round 3 after 2 sub-standard jumps.

                            Dadic 6.42 and Ikauniece 6.33 also did well. 6.21 for Ndama is a bit below what she did at the NC, but she's still got a good shot at a medal.

                              Dadic looked quite uncomfortable after her 3rd jump. Managed 6.42to put herself in for a good medal chance but clutched her side afterwards and lay on the ground.
