    Suffice it to say, Ukhov had never jumped 2.34m outdoors before Castellón. Now he's cleared that twice in eight days. Good on him.

    I may have to take a trip to Eugene in the future. Too much good stuff to have it be ruined by NBC.

    Is it just me or Ukhov look like a linebacker. Maybe it is my TV but man he sure seems to be beefier than the average elite HJer.
    It doesn't look like Dwight has any pull at all. His expertise is pretty much hidden during these telecasts.
    Sure, HJ & LJ was outrageous but so was the SP. Can you imagine coming up with worse angles? It's like they are sabotaging these events.

    I think Ukhov is a bit more powerfully built than most HJers. He's not one of the reed thin guys like Rybakov. He did some discus in his youth. However, he is 6' 4" and not that heavy. The way he dresses also tend to make him look bulkier.
    He is a strong, athletic guy with very good gymnastic ability. Check out that video where he does that incredible backwards somersault over the bar.

    That's the typical US coverage for you. If it had been Eurosport....

    A bit steep progression.
    Not sure I agree with Williams's decision to pass until 2.21. That brought him to 2.31 already in his third jump.

    I did not expect Silnov to be back on top after his injury. Manson disappointed (not too surprised). But he is 25 now and it is time to get more stable.

    Has Jonas been having injury problems this spring?

    I sure liked Ukhov. He really gets low in his penultimate stride.

    Wow Silnov really bombed out.. I was expecting a little more from him. Did anyone see his extremely awkward interview on Runners World?!

    For me, a good benchmark for whether the amount of HJ coverage was decent is whether we get to see more makes than misses or not. All too often we get nothing except a quick shot of 2nd place missing his (or her) final attempt at a height, then the winner with their final clearance, followed by a miss or three at some higher height.


    But it's sad that that's become my cutoff for "decent."
