    His jump makes him =10 all-time U.S. indoors.

    Dan, I have that as his absolute PR, in or out. True?

      What is it with feet and inches this week?

      2.32m isn't 7'7 3/4", it's 7' 7.34" (usually rounded to 7'7 1/4", I think)

        Absolutely Mark. He jumped 2.32 and not 2.33.

        2.32 is a PR for Nieto in or out. I talked to him briefly after the Jerome meet in Vancouver last year. He is terrific guy and his technique really impressed me.
        It seems he is flying mostly under the radar screen among U.S. fans though.
        I see him as a possible medal contender in Athens.

          Truly spoken. Budapest should be quite interesting with Nieto, Holm and possibly Baba contending for medals. Nieto is very sound technically and I think he hasn't even hit his peak this indoor season. Although there are some other quality jumpers out there (Freitag - nursing an injury, Voronin - missing in action since his 2.40 jump) no one approaches the consistency this season as do the aforementioned three.
          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.

            You're right. 2.32m is 7-7 1/4. That's why I prefer metric!

            And yes, it IS an absolute PR, indoors or out.
