Kelsey-Lee Barber's breakout season has seen the javelin thrower emerge as a genuine medal contender at the looming world championships.
Canberra's Barber finished second in the javelin behind Tatsiana Khaladovich from Belarus at the London Diamond League meet over the weekend.
Barber's best of 65.85m further cements her status as a genuine medal contender at the upcoming world championships beginning in late September.
It comes after she improved her personal best by two metres with a 67.70m throw at the Spitzen Leichtathletik meeting in Lucerne to continue a stellar season.
Barber had smashed her personal best just two weeks after setting it and booking an Olympic Games qualifier at the Oceania championships.
Perhaps it shouldn't have been such a surprise given that throw left her feeling like "there's more there".
Barber's impressive outing in London continues a rich vein of form with her effort in Lucerne standing as the exclamation mark.
"We had a little giggle about it afterwards with the ruler measurement, being like 'this is how much you improved last year and this is how much you improved the year after, and then...'," Barber said on the BBC Athletics podcast.
"It has felt like a long time coming but I have appreciated the process it has taken to get there. I think part of that throw was the self belief.
"At my nationals earlier this year, I had a really consistent, solid series, but I felt like there was something more. I genuinely was standing at the top of the runway like 'I feel like I can throw the javelin 66 metres today'.
"To come out last week and throw it, it wasn't as much of a shock, it felt like an accomplishment, because I genuinely felt like it was there."
Meanwhile, Australia's distance running stocks for the world athletics championships in Doha have received a significant boost.
The national squad in Doha could now include a full complement of three runners in the men's 5000m after Stewart McSweyn, Patrick Tiernan and US collegiate star Morgan McDonald all dipped under the automatic qualifying mark of 13:22.50 at London Stadium.
The versatile McSweyn was the standout, finishing fourth in 13:05.63 in a quick race won in 13:01.86 by Ethiopian Hagos Gebrhiwet.
The rangy Tasmanian can keep his options for Doha open as he has also previously bettered the qualifying standard in the 1500m.
Rio Olympian Tiernan clocked a personal best of 13:12.60 to finish eighth in London and McDonald was ninth in 13:18.91.
National record holder Linden Hall took advantage of a red-hot pace in the women's 1500m to clock 4:04.29, also dipping under the world championships qualifying mark in the process. Scottish star Laura Muir won in 3:58.25.
