    Patton won 100m 9.94, Rodgers 2nd 9.97, Nesta Carter 3rd 10.04. Don't know wind reading, but I'm sure that is legal.

    Blanka 1st attempt at 210 wasn't close.

            Nope, not this time, but 208 is also nice.

              About time she went for a pb first, before the WR. Got to be good for your confidence. Anyone know if she can get 2:10 in practice?

                        Her father said several times that she has a height, but I never heard or read that she actually jump over 210 in practice.

                          it was a great clearance as well she didn't even touch the bar.

                          there was none of the usual blanka celebrations either she seemed to almost burst into tears and cover her face with her hands

                          so much better to clear 2.08 and then try for 2.10 than jumping straight to WR hight
                          i deserve extra credit

                            And here's a radical thought: before trying 2.10 again, take a few shots at 2.09.
