  • mPV MS Rankings

    The Marks Snob is back with the mPV. I remind you that we are looking at quality of marks, but more important is how they did against elite fields jumping high. Picking an initial group is easy, just look at their SECOND best mark of the season. We get

    Walker 600
    Hooker 597
    Lukyanenko 597

    Then a drop to the next tier

    Miles 580
    Kucheryanu 580
    Mazuryk 580
    Holzdeppe 575
    Straub 575
    Pavlov 575

    Now we rank the top meets by number and depth of competitors

    1. OG
    2. London
    3. WAF
    4. Lausanne
    5. Athens

    There were 3 other meets that I looked at, but Berlin was just too early (peaking being taken into consideration); Paris and Rieti had decent fields but so-so marks.

    We notice right away that some elite vaulters were ‘bar jumpers’, jumped well but not in the big meets: Kucheryanu, Mazuryk, Holzdeppe, Pavlov.

    So, after weighing the rest of jumpers in the big meets, we end up six vaulters who were clearly the best of the best:

    1. Hooker - OG 1, Lond 2 – coulda used some more high finishes, but you can’t argue with what he did when he competed
    2. Luky – OG 2, Lond 1, Laus 1, WAF 5 – Barely edged by Hooker
    3. Miles – OG 4, WAF 1, Laus 2, Athens 3 – upset over Walker, but did more
    4. Walker – Athens 1, WAF 2, London 3, Laus 4 – very good, except OG
    5. Yurch – OG 3, London 6, Athens 6 – Solid
    6. Straub – Laus 3, London 4, WAF 4 – competed well enough to make top 6

    You're ignoring one of the year's major honors: World Indoor, won by Lukyanenko.

      Personally I would ignore any marks or honors won indoors for any events, period.

        Which is exactly what I did. If Berlin's June 1 is too early for people to be peaked, what is March . . . indoors . . . when a great many elite athletes don't even deign to compete! :roll: Never a consideration.

            I appreciate what Miles did this year but it is really difficult to put him ahead of Walker with a 6.04 and a 6.00 this year in real competitions. Too bad Walker had such god awful Olympic Trials and OG's outcomes.
