    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.

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

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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.

    If KJT runs 2.08 her final score would be 6966, presuming she does not improve her javelin in the third round

    KJT, if your going to break the British record, why not score 7000 points while your there.
