    And she might not have to worry about Hellebaut this time.

      Nice that Vlasic is going for the jackpot, and not the WR. Her aim the final three meets is to go out on top... "to survive these last three meets."

            I wonder if Blanca will keep her cool tonight? It's $$$$$ on stake here....

              She'll likely have to jump 2.07 to beat Hellebaut, in the lion's den.

                Oh, Blanca, Blanca, I'm having a heart attack!!! 1.94 on 3d attempt and now in 3d.

                  Blanca will have to clear 2.00 ahead of several other jumpers to win the event -- Isi just missed her opening height!

                    Well Blanca now just lost $500,000 for sure - Jelimo won - so will she lose another half mill?? Just did 1.97, so keeps dodging golden bullet...and Hellebaut looks like she's got post Beijingitis, as does everybody else.

                      Friedrich is over 2.00. Vlasic must pass. Don't know if she has ever had to use such a strategy.

                        Vlasic is taking a pointless jump at 2.00. She made it, but it doesn't put her into the lead. Of course, what it does do is give her three attempts now at 2.02. Still, that was her 10th jump. She needs a breather somewhere.

                          It wasn't pointless at all. Jumping as she is today she needs the option of three available attempts at each height.

                          But, her run-up on her 2.00m clearance was the best I've seen for months.

                            I just have this feeling that Hellebaut is going to win on her 3d attempt at 2.02
