Fair or Foul? Should Julius Yego's 91.39m Monster Javelin Throw Have Counted in Birmingham?

The biggest news was Mo Farah pulling out of the meet before hand, but on the track there was a thrilling women's 200m, in the infield one of the best javelins ever, and in the distances Hassan and Amos picked up their first DL wins of the year and Bernard Lagat another master's WR in one of his least impressive runs of the year.
