    Poland:
    Kielbasinska - 51.0
    Baumgart Witan - 50.2
    Holub-Kowalik - 50.4
    Swiety-Ersetic - 51.4

    Was Justyna shutting it down, or does she miss out to Kaczmarek in the final? Hard to drop any of the first 3 legs.

    Femke Bol (49.1) the fastest split.

      I feel like swiety wasn't great in the XR?

      She wasn't - has been injured and has focused on the relays. She may well struggle as she gets more runs in her legs...

  • Just the four of them in it now.

    • Not a great PV final with only 4 of the 15 clearing 4.70.

    • 4 still in at 4.80 - Sidorova, Bradshaw, Nageotte, Stefanidi.

      • So that’s guaranteed top 4 for Holly and currently 2nd. No medal would be a big disappointment now.

          Why would you say that and invoke the curse?

          Crap I really should have kept my mouth shut.

          EDIT. I didn’t realise Stefanidi was a 2nd time clearance. Phew!

      • Holly and Stefanidi both miss, Sidarova over.
        - she looks sublime

        ETA Nageotte over first time, so Holly down to 3rd.

        • Sidorova showing how it's done. She was always a shoo-in for one of the 10 ANA places for good reason.

          • Nageotte over - comfortably.

            Stefanidi slithers over 2nd time.

            Holly needs this 2nd time to get back in the medals.

              Nageotte looks incredibly fast so I wonder whether the fast track took her a bit to get used to

          • Holly now 4th

            Comment


          • The others all over 4.80 now. Holly down in 4th.

            • Holly over! Thank god, stays third

              Comment


              • Thank goodness! Back in a medal position.

                Comment


                • Bradshaw over 4.80 second time!

                  Comment


                  • Whatever happens here, Holly has shown she is a new athlete this year. That took huge guts. Come on girl!

                    Comment


                    • She's still 2nd on number of failures.

                        I think, at least? Or is it only if they clear at the same height next?

                        Will be useful if she matches Nageotte at their highest height.
