DL Final Zurich- High Stakes Meet

Unread postby hardflex » Mon Aug 26, 2013 10:53 am

The Diamond League Women's Final is set for Zurich in 3 days. The four top women, Sylva, Speigleberg, Suhr, and Murer are all in the hunt for the $40k prize money. Here's the way it shakes out.

Murer and Suhr can both win if they win the meet and Sylva gets no better than 3rd place.

Spiegleberg will win with a 1st place.

Sylva will win with a 1st place finish or a 2nd place finish if the winner is not Spiegleberg.

Intruiging. I'll be watching !

Thanks for the analysis! Should be a good meet. Spiegelburg performs well in Diamond League meets, can she take the title again?

I'll go out on a limb and predict a 4th place finish for her.

and Speigelberg ups her game and wins the meet at 4.79, and with it the Diamond League Championship. No misses till 4.86. Murer Second at 4.72 also clean thru that height. Sylva needed 3 attempts at 4.62 so was 3rd.

Saxer 4.52
Suhr nh only 1 attempt, hope she didn't get hurt.
