Yes/No: Will Špotáková Win in London?

Former University of Minnesota Gopher Barbora Špotáková is preparing to defend her Olympic javelin title in early August.  Špotáková, the world record holder in the event, won gold in Beijing in 2008 and she will attempt to repeat in London.

This week, she will compete in the two day Diamond League track meet in London.  She will face off with her current chief rival Sunette Viljoen of South Africa as well as Ukraine's Vira Rebryk.

How will Barbora Špotáková fare in this Olympic preview?  We want you to tell us ...

My Answer:  No

The Yes/No question last week was: Will Josh Moen win AND break the course record at the Afton 25K?  The answer was  no - Moen finished third.  Nineteen players answered correctly this week.  Gloria Jansen is still in first place and has eighteen points, followed closely by Mike Mason with seventeen points.  There are three with sixteen points (Ryan Aylesworth, Heather Jelen and Evan Roberts).
