    I don't know if this has been reported elsewhere, but Ukhov upped his season's best to 2.37m today.
    If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

        Ukhov improves world lead to 2.37
        Russian Indoor Champs Day 3

        Moscow, Russia – Ivan Ukhov and Anna Alminova provided the key highlights as the Russian indoor championships concluded today in Moscow.

        The 22-year-old Ukhov produced another excellent performance, clearing 2.37m to reclaim sole possession of the world lead in the High Jump.

        It was the last medal that was at stake at the Indoor championships and it was the most breath taking. It took Ukhov only seven attempts to get to the top step of the podium. He cautiously started at 2.15 and went out at 2.40. Two attempts at the latter, a would-be personal best and national record, were quite close. The record didn't fall this time but even in the absence of the Olympic champion Andrei Silnov and the World Indoor champion Yaroslav Rybakov Ukhov did his utmost. His consistency is solid at the moment and the world lead remains on the verge being improved.

        His contenders were left far – maybe too far – behind. Aleksandr Shustov and Aleksei Dmitrik cleared 2.30 and 2.27 respectively.
