  • Did Feofanova pass on a WR attempt?

    That's what appears to have happened, looking at it online. Why would you pass at a chance for $100,000? Was she hurt?

      Allow me to quote what the stadium announcer said (since it was me, i might get it close to right!).

      <<The pole vault bar has been raised to a World Record height of 4.83. However, Svetlana Feofanova, the only competitor to clear 4.75, is currently taking a victory lap and it remains unclear as to whether or not she plans to jump at this height>>

      In theory, they probably should have called a time foul on her by the time she got back to the pit, but since her promenade was interrupted by other activities, they didn't. They finally just took the bar down.

      Likewise, Freitag didn't try anything higher than his winning height. This kid is going to be really something.
