    KJT would have loved one more height : actually wasn't too far away on second try there . Thiam out in front now but Kat is in third . Shot next and she needs to not lose too much to the better throwers.

    The good thing is it appears it is more rustiness than handicap from injury that is limiting her so far.

    Thiam finishes with 1.92.

    KJT bows out at 1.86m. Was never too far away, but clearly the lack of comp means she's a bit rusty.

    Still, nobody bar Thiam will go further than her, Bougard is the only other person who joined those two clearing 1.86m.

    A lot will depend on the shot/javelin and how far behind she is on those as she's sacrificing some of her normal advantage in HJ and possibly LJ on the rest of the field.

    Straight over 1.86 on attempt 1.

    She's clearly not going to challenge Thiam, but this is solid enough from KJT.

    i just looked up her bio - these bios are cool - it makes you sound sound really informed - they do have some great information about the athletes. 1.86m kjt!

    And she's cleared 1.86 first shot ! And it looked a easy clearance... good signs : and she has a smile on her face.

It seems to be a quick track and/or their shoes seem to have some technical advantage!
    Yeah didn't she rupture her achilles late last year

    Maybe it's just me but Bol comes across a lot more respectful of her competition than Benjamin did yesterday

    KJT is struggling a little in the HJ with 2 failures at 1.83.

    Another fantastic hurdle race. Another WR... Fancied McLaughlin but wasn't at all sure when Muhammed got out to that lead...Came home brilliantly on the run in : great race 👍

    400m Hurdles really has gone bonkers over the last few years.

    51.46 another WR - Muhammed really pushed McLaughlin. Bol breaks Pechonkina's ER.
