    Is Rogo's hand better?

      Yes, she's been back to normal training for over a week now.

      AFAIK the only competition she's planning to do before Daegu is the national champs, so we may not get a good idea of what form she's in pre-WCh. She sounded fairly optimistic about her chances in an interview I read today, though.

        It's only going to take 4.70 (15-5) to medal and here's the usual suspects with their jumps so far this year. Suhr's 4.91 isn't listed on the IAAF list, but Becca assured us she cleared it. :wink:
        Strutz has made it the most, but also came in 6th last week in Stockholm.

        4.78 Martina Strutz
        4.76 Elena Isinbaeva
        4.75 Anna Rogowska
        4.75 Silke Spiegelburg
        4.71 Strutz
        4.70 Fabiana Murer
        4.70 Strutz
        4.70 Svetlana Feofanova
        4.70 Feofanova
        4.70 Strutz
        4.70 Holly Bleasdale
        4.70 Strutz
        4.70 Spiegelburg

        As of now, my top three are

        1. Isi
        2. Jennski
        3. Strutz

        but that will change 5 times between now and the 27th.

        Everyone on that list has a legit medal shot, OR could leave medalless.

          Hutson showed a continued upward trend at the earlier part of the year, taking the Mall vault with several PRs and then the Trials/USATF. However, since then she has been inconsistent with numerous NHs and low clearances. :? She is one of my favorite athletes, but it looks like it is a bit of a long shot for her to make the Final, much less the podium.

            I did no such thing. I'm not even the one who posted on here that she did it, someone copied a post from my message board that said she did. I haven't seen the official results yet or whatever.

            I have no reason to believe it's untrue or hinky though. Rick has historically had Jenn jump in small local meets, and I've never known them to make up results.

            It's probably not on the IAAF lists because the meet director has no idea that they need to submit them.

                Beg pardon! Guilty by association!

                    Best video of the day -- she was a bit past happy, even. The record clearance was a nicer vault than the prior clearance, clean and straight.

                      I'm used to seeing svelte athletes, but she is one of the slimmest-hipped ones I've ever seen! :shock:

                        The aspect ratio is not right on the video; it is too tall and too thin (the sort of distortion that can be felt falling into a black hole ).

                          Yeah, I hate when that happens! I always feel out of sorts afterward.

                              "Afterwards" implies times arrow continues to point, but for your spacetime that isn't the case.
