Who was the top female performer in Daegu in your view? I think there is a wide range of top performances on offer although many emotionally may tend towards Sally Pearson straight away. Personally, I find it really hard to pick as I was also highly impressed and enthralled by Maria Abakumova‘s 71.99m to instantly respond with her back to the wall to Barbora Spotakova‘s (CZE) seeming winner of 71.58m minutes earlier in the women’s javelin and Lashinda Demus‘s (USA) sizzling run of 52.47 secs in windy conditions over 400m hurdles, in a race that defending champion Melaine Walker (JAM) also dipped under 53 secs.
