    A better 2nd round throw from Thiam just over 48m, but that is not nearly enough for her. She needs to go substantially over 50m (realistically she needs to get close to her monster PB throw) to really get herself back into contention.

      I think to have a decent chance of winning overall, Thiam would probably need to throw about 60m!

        It's over! Thiam I believe has just called it a day in the javelin!

          Horrible to watch Thiam having to settle for 48m. Barring disaster, we have another World Champion.

            I'm guessing that Thiam and her coaching team took a look at her elbow, the situation in the contest, and then the prospect of whether it was worth risking blowing out her elbow with Tokyo next year, and decided that Thiam should take the silver and get that elbow proper sorted out and really go for it for the Olympic Games.

            A sensible decision if you ask me, but a shame as you say.

              Absolutely sensible

              In the decathlon, with the demise of Mayer, folks should be really looking out for German wunderkid Niklas Kaul. Currently cleared all of his heights first time in the pole vault, he lies in 6th place overall, but he has a truly monstrous javelin to come next and that could put him in range of even the gold medal still. Especially with Damian Warner struggling in the PV and going out at 4.70m.

                As well as a monster JT he runs a very decent 1500.

              Speaking of horrible, has Kevin Mayer dropped out of the decathlon?

                I assume he has. Technically he could start the javelin and 1500 but I doubt whether he would and I think he would be very unwise to do so.

              Don't know if this has been reported elsewhere, but the IAAF text commentary has said that


              "I'm hearing Orlando Ortega will receive a bronze medal from last night's 110m hurdles race. The Spaniard was in silver medal position before a tumbling Omar McLeod interrupted his stride between the final two barriers, causing him to slow considerably and cross the line fifth.

              The original bronze medallist, Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, will keep his medal."

                They’ve just mentioned it on the BBC. Interesting decision.

              If Kat equals her 800 PB, she'll score about 150pts more than Nafi has ever scored in a Championship. I didn't realise Nafi's 2nd best Hep score was only her 6819pts from Talence.

                Seems a brave but sensible decision. No one loses out, Ortega will feel partially rewarded and get his podium time. Good decision by Seb & Co

                  It definitely seems fair in this case, but will the precedent mean lots more challenges across distances?

                Bit of a blanket finish there, this is the kind of race Grice would get run out of like Tefera.

                  Looks like F. Ingrebrigtsen could be in trouble there...

                    Josh Kerr did well to stay out of all that mess and qualified nicely into the semi finals.

                        Watching again, they were both playing a bit rough even for middle distance runners, but Filip was worst.
