    I'm his biggest fan, but Sellers is doubtful to take the title. He's had some health issues to contend with and he's just not technically sound this indoor season. Look for Paul Hamilton to jump well.

    It is a shame that Jerome Miller won't be there.
    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.

            14 alive at 2.14 (7- 1/4). First round clearances for Sellers and Drouin and I think they were the only ones. (I didn't see Hamilton or Grinnell jump and neither did Scott Davis. Either we both had attention lapses at the same time or they both passed.)

              Second attempt clearances for Wright, Harris, and Fritz. Third attempts up next.

                Wijesekara clears on his third. Thomas, Frick, Gill, Arrivey, and Silcock eliminated.

                Grinnell had been triple jumping, passed the opening height took his attempts at 2.14 after all other jumping was completed. Missed three times.

                No sign of Hamilton. He may have withdrawn. We'll update this when we figure it out.

                Post-event UPDATE. He missed three times at the opening height. I must have missed his third attempt.

                Next height 2.19 (7-2 1/4).

                    Wow, he could actually win this thing. That ties his best all year. Nice time to peak.

                        Bar now at 2.22 (7-3 1/4). Sellars is the only one left. He clears on his first attempt.

                        Next listed height 2.25 (7-4 1/2), but he's asked that the bar be raised to 2.30 (7-6 1/2).

                        CORRECTION: When they raised the bar, at that point, I presumed it was to the next listed height of 2.22, and in fact I'm pretty sure it was actually posted that way on the scoreboard, at least at first.

                        In fact, it appears that he passed. 2.22 and jumped at (and cleared) 2.25. Sorry for the confusion.

                            At least he is rounding into form. I'm happy for the guy.

                              He won it not only because he matched, and then improved, his seasonal best, but also because 11 other guys who had cleared 2.19 or higher earlier in the season couldn't do it here.
