one difference about the hammer in this meet is that it's part of the IAAF Hammer Challenge.

Gh.

Yes. Jeneva needs one more meet to finish in the top 5 or 6. She is ready right now to throw far. Also one more B level meet over 73.70 would put her 5th or 6th on world rankings. We were removed from bejinj hammer at last moment, and lost that meet. Also prefontaine really hurt they should take more americans like every other hosting country does. She has rieti to get it done.

Does being excluded from a meet factor into the T&F News rankings?
As in, cut McCall some slack since she was not allowed to compete?

Jeneva has 1 more meet to get it done , that's all we need. She has thrown 73.75, 70.47, 72.65, 74.77, 70.94 in europe. They wont be able to keep her out forever. She will knock down those brick walls.

The obvious answer seems to be: zero effect + or -.
She could have done very well or bombed.
