    Mondo, Sam, Nilsen, RLaV . . . even Lisek and Braz - have to be considered first, but his has been a great story this year, and if he got a medal, the story would have a great ending.
    Wht Lisek and Braz?
    Obiena has 2 performances this year better than them.
    And I think with Braz, Obiena has beaten Braz nearly every time.

          If anything, he had more pressure to succeed than anyone else.
          If you are the OLYMPIC CHAMPION, and you are in form (jumped over 19' recently), you have to be considered. Obiena has jumped 2" higher this year. Just sayin'.

            I didn't see it that way at all. I thought Braz had a huge advantage competing at home, and having a raucous Brazilian crowd behind him. If we were talking about Brazil soccer, then I think you would be 100% right regarding the pressure. But I got the feeling throughout that entire competition that Braz was jumping with nothing to lose and everything to gain! But other people might have viewed it differently.

              I do see your point, but to dismiss his victory as mere homerism is grossly unfair to him. He had to jump those bars . . . knowing what a huge disappointment he'd be if he did poorly. Look what happened to the Brazil futbol team after the 2014 World Cup semi.

                Agreed! I was only commenting about the pressure. I always thought Lavillenie felt more pressure at the Rio Olympics than Braz. Kudos to
                Braz for clearing 6.03. Like you said, he still had to clear the bar!

                      Burghardt changed coaches a couple of years ago but has suffered injuries. She was a very good junior and is finally showing her potential.

                      Shes entered in the 200m tomorrow as well.
                      Burghardt goes 11.01 (1.8) today in Switzerland, huge PB and reinforces her German number 1 status this season.

                        This is also good news for the German 4x100 relay. They might be able to sneak in for a bronze medal if the US or GBR slip up!
