    mixing throws with any other event area is necessarily an interesting double, and interesting doubles are so much more beautiful than a 100/200 or 5000/10000.

    I would think it more likely by a male decathlete.

    for another NCAA one of note (it was obviously way easier back in the old days) Brick Muller of Cal in '22 was 3rd in the HJ, 2nd in the LJ and 4th in the DT.

    And don't forget Bob Mathias '52: 2nd in the 110H, 7th in the shot, 6th in the discus.

    Micheline Ostermeyer (France) won the 1948 Olympic discus, five days later won the shot put, and then about three days after the shot put, she won the Olympic bronze medal in the high jump.

    In the 1938 European Championships, Kalevi Kotkas was 2nd in the HJ and 4th in the DT, plus 11th in the SP. Four years earlier, he took the HJ gold.

    In the '53 NCAA (big-boy version) Howard McCants of Washington State was 6th in the DT and =9th in the HJ.

    He was 6-8/230

    Osakue is 5'11", and height is an advantage both in the high jump and discus.

    But perhaps more importantly, when the quality of the D2 high jump field is such that 1.73m/5'8" is the winner, it's not so difficult for an athlete who specializes in another non-jumping event to place in the top 10.

    Interesting double at D2 Championships

    Angelo State's Daisy Osakue (by way of Italy) won the discus at 60.26/197-8, a meet record. Then she placed 10th in the, ummmmmmmm, high jump (???).

    To me, that's an unusual double!
