That only one person jumped over 8.2m is terrible for the sport, to say the least.

They need to make rule changes to give athletes more chances, imho. Maybe carry over qualifying distances to the final.

Don't be silly. It's just one of those nights that happen and fluky winds as well doesn't help.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It's just a relatively bad crop of jumpers. No rules change needed.

It's still an exciting competion with position 2-5 separated by a few centimeters.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Happened last Olympics too. It's just one of those events where the best athletes miss their chances the most. Nothing is quite like it and triple jump and people falling out. Which is why I wouldn't be against them being a bit more lenient.

I am sorry you got to do it in the finals, the qualifying only counts .

Lets see Carl Lewis, Phillips, Pedroso, Beamon, Saladino. Sure Rutherford isn't as good as those guys but he handled the pressure and home crowd helped him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
