Boyd misses her first at 4.50, not even close.

Well the contenders are definitely separating themselves from the pretenders.

None of the top women are having any issues with the wind.

Feofanova passed her third attempt at 4.40, so she only gets one at 4.50 and it is a miss. She is out. No finals. NH.

Google Maps says it's a little over 11 miles between the venues, so I guess that rain at Wimbledon doesn't mean much for the track.

Shame about Feo. :(
