      Mr. Consistency

      2002 2.31
      2003 2.22
      2004 2.32
      2005 2.23
      2006 2.26
      2007 2.30
      2008 2.33

      Will he jump 7'7 or 7'1?
      Well, 2.22 is above 7'1" (7'3.4") and taking trends over the 'standard' Olympic duration interval leads to a promising 2.36/almost 7'9".

      Also, for message board patrons, note (younger brother of a semi-regular here):

      200: Chris Berrian

        Could someone explain to me why there are only 5 events for women and 9 for the men?

          There are eight women's events - 60m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 3000m, 60mH and LJ - Jon only mentioned the noteworthy ones because some of the fields on the women's side are pretty weak.

            Oh, that's a bit better! Thanks nev. Still, sometimes in international matches there has been a trend to have less events for the women, which is a bit harsh considering our women are better, internationally speaking, than our men!

                I am glad that someone gave him (Chris Berrian) a chance to compete at a track'n'field meet, although it is the 200m indoors.

                  Any relation to Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian, as well as the forumite?

                    Allan Scott has also pulled out because he was pissed off at only getting a 'guest' lane in the 60H. :roll:
