Great to see the new guys get in. I wish Clarke would've made it.
It would be shocking to see Crouser throw 22m in Rio, Kovacs still has to be the US medal favorite.
Make your picks.

Will you have the opportunity to compete at the Brussels Diamond League met?

Hey there, has anyone of you read this article?
One month from today the IAAF will elect their next president. Two candidates are vying for the position: Lord Sebastian Coe and Sergey Bubka.
Both Coe and Bubka have stellar resumés that will surely push the sport forward. But sometimes it is a bit difficult to see the differences between them. Both are currently vice presidents at the IAAF. Coe won two Olympic golds; Bubka won one, in addition to six world titles. Coe set 11 world records; Bubka 35. Coe leads the British Olympic Association; Bubka is at the helm of the Ukrainian Olympic Committee.
Even their proposals start to look the same. Bubka wants more street events, and so does Coe.Coe is zero tolerance on doping, and so is Bubka. Coe calls for a reform of the athletics calenderand, suprise surprise, so does Bubka. And I could go on.
But there is one area where there is a difference. I’ve never seen Coe pick up a hammer, but earlier this year Bubka not only did that, but stated on the record his support of our event while visiting Primoz Kozmus’ school in Slovenia. When asked about the problem of the hammer throw being excluded from the Diamond League, Bubka responded:

What are you thoughts?
I share the concern of @ThrowerFanatic
Not sure why would anyone then look for drug users on competitions etc.?
Right now it is the case that the WADA etc. cannot get everyone.
The drugs are way to enhanced.
Doubt that it would make difference what you are suggesting
