    Some interesting snippets from the IAAF article:
    "I did not want to go for 5.75 metres again, since I had already jumped this. Instead I wanted to go for 5.80.”

    His third attempt at that height was indeed very promising and showed that he should be capable of jumping this soon.

    “I used a new, bigger pole for 5.80 metres. It is the biggest one I have used this year." During the indoor season it is his aim to break the British record of 5.81m.

    Ecker was not too surprised about Lewis. “He had jumped well before. He jumps smoothly and has the necessary feeling for it. He will be one you have to watch in the future,” Ecker said.
    And according to the T&FN homepage, Gordeyeva actually jumped 2.31m! :lol:

      Gordeyeva has made a huge breakthrough this year. Before the 2008 outdoor season her PB was just 1.88. She improved to 1.95 last summer and now this... but 2.31 still seems a bit out of reach :roll:
      Było smaszno, a jaszmije smukwijne...

        That's now been fixed.
