    Turning away from the ever-fun AUS-NZ banter, this event is THE go to for Aussie women.

    Barber is our third WJT medallist at WC. While there was a lull in the 2000s, the 1990s and 2010s have been chockful of finallists:

    1991 Louise Currey (McPaul) 6th
    1995 Joanna Stone-Nixon 5th
    1997 Joanna Stone-Nixon 2nd
    1999 Louise Currey (McPaul) 5th
    2011 Kimberly Mickle 6th
    2013 Kathryn Mitchell 5th
    2011 Kimberly Mickle 2nd
    2017 Kelsey-Lee Barber 10th
    2017 Kelsey-Lee Barber 1st

    That's 5 different athletes with top 8 finishes.

    The next best is 4 (WLJ, but with no medals)

    The best on the men's side is 6:
    MLJ (6 with 2 silvers and a bronze)
    M20kW and M50KW both have 4 (at least, I've lost track of medal/place re-allocations here)


    Back to WJT, there was also an Olympic Silver (Currey McPaul in 1996), and a 6th (Mitchell in 2016) during this period.

    Winger was 8th in 2015...

    Fantastic coverage by NBC. Barber's throw, shown with one minute to go, and that was it. Too busy patting themselves on the back for three golds.

    This was kind of limping along through four rounds until Liu hit a bomb in the 5th, right after Brazier won and while the epic pole vault was going on. I wonder if the crowd energy is infectious.

    Wow; what a finish. Fourth to first, and the others got good final throws but not what they needed going for broke.
