Originally posted by marknhjI can't imagine she'll go to 2.09m but there is a precedent with the men. In May 1980, Wszola cleared 2.35m for a new WR. Mogenburg equaled it the next day.
Kostadinova also equalled Andonova's 2.07 before breaking it.

Blanka's still 70 behind Stefka.

There will certainly be mixed feelings if she clears 2.09 in a fabulous jump and again misses at 2.10.
Is Blanka the hardest working girl in track and field?

Considering the number of dances Blanka has done after successful jumps, she has to be ready for Dancing With the Stars!

Originally posted by marknhjOriginally posted by Frans RuttenGreat jump that 2,08m clearance. But her 3 WRattempts were as good as chanceless. Although she had the best conditions all year. You don't jump 2,10m at random. So I am not yet a believer.
You could tell by her reaction after the 2.08m clearance what an emotional relief is was for her to pr for the first time in two years. Pure relief. It was a great jump, but one that should have been made before now. Her pr only remained at 2.07m because of the silly number of attempts at 2.10m she's made. How many competitions does she have left this year? It wouldn't surprise me if she made 2.10m now, although I tend to agree with gh and think a jump or two at 2.09m may be a good idea.
