And Naimova is back, it's good for Bulgarian athletics.
Didn't she keep Lalova out of the medals? One of the nicest athletes with a great global profile and most importantly everybody feels is dope free.
The Finnish Eurosport commentator certainly agrees with you - he forgot to mute his microphone after women's semifinal when they went to the ad break
Not that I disagree with his highly complimentary comment

On 3 February 2013, Thiam broke the junior indoor world record on the pentathlon at a meeting in Ghent. Carolina Klüft, who later became Olympic champion and triple world champion, had held the record since 2002 with 4535 points. Thiam totalled 4558 points,
currently in 3rd after shot at euro indoors
Thiam mark won't be ratified as a WJR. Apparently there was no doping control at the meet, and by the time they got her to an approved facility the next day the window of legality had closed. (I hasten to add this doesn't mean she is suspected of having done anything wrong; just that the letter of the law as required for record ratification couldn't be met)
