Oh well, Anju George's national record of 6.83m wasn't enough to get her a medal position in the long jump yesterday. But I'm amazed that people thought she'd get to the podium. At best, she was ranked #6 or #7 in the world based on season best jumps prior to the games. She'd never got to 6.9m, let alone 7m. Four others had already done 7m in 2004 alone. So really, the odds were so stacked against her that it was almost cruel to hold her up as being India's sole remaining hope.
