    Did Walker really miss thrice at 5.85? I was under the impression that he had passed out of the competition after 5.75.
    Brad and Toby took 2 attempts at 5.85 then called it a day, Derek and Jeremy took 3 attempts.

      Stevenson had no choice but to only jump twice; he was still packing a first-try miss from 5.80 with him. It was a zooie time; I somehow missed both of Walker's attempts. (glad to know I only missed two, not three!)

        I did not record Stevenson taking any attempts at 5.80, only Hollis. I suppose it is possible I missed a jump.

          You may be right on Stevenson; I'm just citing what the official chart says.

            I suspect so. He's almost 42 years old and he hasn't competed all year.
            He obviously would make a great coach at some school.

              He's focusing on being an agent and working for Gill Athletics, but he has coached a lot of Earl's camps, and I think he helps out vaulters from time to time at meets and he is good at it.

                I get the impression that those hand held hy-tek devices don't always deal with passing well, especially at the end of the competition.

                    I guess that's better than being a hermaphroditic xxy!

                      I have a similar impression from dealing with them. Never put them in the hand of the head vault official, it detracts from paying attention to all of the real stuff. I have found that the larger the field and the longer the event goes, the slower the device works and it is easier to make a mistake (delayed feedback-> double entry, etc). They also seem unnecessarily difficult to 'reverse' a mistaken entry or doing anything different from its programming, which is not necessarily exactly perfect.
