    Am I missing something? Was all this posting drama started by one guy who wondered aloud if Kanter might break the WR in Maui?

    Is there some other post that Coach Rodney was ranting about? I sure didn't see it.

    Anyway...Yeah I think a guy who can throw close to 70m in a stadium has a great shot at breaking the WR at a windy venue. I think it's a valid question, considering the WR has stood for so long and a lot of people would like to see the records from that era broken.

    Great throwers throw far. Farther with good wind. As for Alekna, the guy can't win every time, when was the last time he finished out of the medals in a championship meet?

    The best throwers throw far consistently,what I find hard to comprehend is how do you explain those that have 5-6 meter PR's or SB's. Can a good wind take a consistent 60m thrower to 66m for one great windy meet? Is there that much advantage?

    Schult himself said that his WR was a result of perfect wind conditions. If you look at the rest of his series from that day, I don't know the numbers off the top of my head but I think his next best throw was somewhere around 215'/65.50m. I could be wrong but I know all his other throws that day were significantly shorter.

    In september, there will be held a couple of throwing competitions in Helsingborg, Sweden. At the same location where Gerd threw 73,38 last year. They are called World Record Galas...

    I know that the "world record" in a stadium is Alekna from 2000. In Zurich (71,12)

    There is a great difference in throwing in a stadium with walls all the way around, but luckily the best throwers in the world are able to throw both in and out of stadiums. Lets not speculate whether Gerd could have broken the world record if the wind had been right. What if Tyson Gay had 2,0 m/s backwind, and what if, what if, what if..
