  • How High Will Isinbayeva Go In Paris?

    In Paris on July 17 Yelena Isinbayeva, if she is competing, will compete in the women's pole vault. I will guess that she will clear 4.90 meters and attempt 5.06 meters. What is your guess on how high Isinbayeva will go in Paris?

    She has not looked good so far. Unless she's 'training through' these meets, and she's slow for that reason, she doesn't seem to have her speed on the runway, exactly like that time after she switched coaches to 'learn to run'. :roll:
    She has had the strength and technique for many years now; the only variable left is her speed, and she just hasn't looked quick so far.

    4.92 is her 10th best outdoor mark ever, and she did that 5 years ago, but she's at 4.85 now. 5.00 is 6" higher and that even seems a stretch now, but we'll see - we're all rooting for her.
