      Only 3 pass 5.41. NH for Miles, Lanaro, Sawano and Pauli. Very disapointing.

        Jeng the only one over 5.51. Wind seems not helping.

            I was really surprised how bad the PV was. I got there just before the actual competition began so I missed them changing runways/direction at the end of warm ups.

            Even then, the headwind didn't seem particularly bad but everyone had a really lousy day. Very disappointing.

              They changed runways before warmups started, or at least well before warmups ended.

              The problem with the wind was it was not consistent. It was like hit a big headwind, barely make it in the pit. Next jump, no wind and blow through. Inconsistent wind makes for tough adjustments.

              This is one of the few outdoor prize money meets the men have had all year. Mt SAC was probably the other. Drake was moved indoors, and obviously the Drake Relays Mall Vault was indoors.

                Huge tactical error on the vaulters' part to demand the event be run that way. I've been coming to Eugene for 40 years and I can only remember one time where the wind was consistently from the south.

                And the headwind was horridly bad at times. Right after Saladino's 28-footer in the long jump I used the wind app on my iPhone (whihc isn't bad) and it said the wind was gusting at 5-6mps. (into the vaulters' faces).

                  Only four clearances in 31 vaults and the starting height was not that high for guys of this caliber. It would have been interesting to see Darren Neidermeyer there. Given his size, he might have powered into the wind better than some and 5.51 is not too high for him (although it is even less high for most of these guys).

                    Didnt' they try changing directions a couple years ago? If memory serves, that didn't turn out well for most of the jumpers either. I think Lenaro managed to work through it that day and got 5.80.
