    Man! He must be on one soft pole!

    I've seen it happen more than once in a single competition at low-level club meets in the UK, where some guys are struggling to get over (I won't say vault!) 2m.

    Easily over 6.02!

    Choosing 6.11 next (?). Now shows 6.12. A mere 20'1.
    Pick 6.22 next! An even 20'5.
    Then 6.25 - Twenty and a half feet.

    Wow! Super-high over the bar, but came down on it.
    They're listing his 6.02 as a Meet Record!
    I don't believe Doha's DL has ever done the Men's PV INdoors before!!

    You push my buttons, I'll push yours!!
    LOL

    But this is INdoors, so he'll need 6.21 to get the INdoor WR!

    Nilsen is looking sluggish - no pop off the ground.
    Is the roof high enough he won't hit it with his rear end???
    LOL

    The others are struggling too. If it's only Mondo left, does he yank it straight to 6.21 or do 6 first? I think the latter.

    Karalis, Vloon, and Walsh go out at 5.61.
    Other 7 move to 5.71!

    All made the opening height (5.41), except Mondo, who passed.
    Valentin LaV needed 3 tries!
    Now jumping at 5.61.

    It is

    https://doha.diamondleague.com/progr...-000100--_json

    stream too?

    Found it - https://www.svtplay.se/video/3530899...a-1?id=8ryyVEk (needs Swedish-based VPN)

    Decent field . . . missing only Sam and Braz to be the WC Final

    BROEDERS
    KARALIS
    LAVILLENIE R
    LIGHTFOOT KC
    LISEK
    NILSEN
    WALSH
    LAVILLENIE V
    VLOON M
    DUPLANTIS

    Note to WA web guru - make the live results sortable by 'jump order' (which is a current column - Pos), not just current standing.

    Cole Walsh is making a career of "Itinerant Pole Vaulter". Should play himself in a Netflix docudrama; I'm sure there's an interesting story there.

    Watching Vloon bail that last jump reminds me how infrequently these guys break crossbars, a regular occurrence (twice a season) at the HS level, not uncommon at collegiate level.

    Mondo must be on a baby pole - only made 5.61 by 2 feet.

    M, the 2 Amis, and the 2 French bros over first try.

    Mostly empty arena - if Mondo breaks the WR (definitely good conditions!), will it have an i next to it? Guess so. Absolute will definitely apply.

    Sorry for my cultural boorishness, but the commentators really do sound like the Swedish Chef on The Muppets.

    BB and Lisek make 5.61, rest are out. Going up by 10cm thru 6.01 - I like it.

    Mondo passing 5.71, KC and BB over, others are missing so far.
    Nilsen over now - natch.
    VLaV over but not Renaud. Is the sun setting on his marvelous career? He still looks super-fit. Needs to be in Paris 24!

    On to 19'

    The early season "fade" could be a thing as it appeared the same for ETH in her recent 200m. I always felt the over distance work would help that but appears to be the opposite. Dina looked great off the bend, looks strong and if conditions are ok should break 11 seconds next weekend in Birmingham. Who isn't fading us Thomas and having run 21.6 on the Eugene track last year after all those rounds, I think she's a medal favourite again.
    She is the favorite for the 200m at Trials next month and as for the WC i will wait to see what ETH does at Trials as per last year she was good at races leading up to trials and stuff but she was Exemplary in Tokyo. Will await to see how Jackson does as well.
