Osaka Javelin Throw Predictions

Men

Gold - Tero Pitkämäki (Finland). His only loss this year was after a grisly accident in Rome took the spirit out of him.

Silver - Andreas Thorkildsen (Norway). Remarkably consistent.

Bronze - Breaux Greer (USA). Has lost to no one but the above two, and beat Thorkildsen in Oslo.

Women

Gold - Christina Obergföll (Germany). Undefeated.

Silver - Steffi Nerius (Germany). The 35-year-old vet has a winning record against all but Obergföll.

Bronze - Barbora Špotáková (Czech Republic).
