      This event loves to contradict form charts. Someone gets hot and that's it.

        Troy Kemp, maybe Martin Buss, Yuriy Krymarenko, Donald Thomas.

          Not so different from some other events. I agree with Buss and Krymarenko but not Kemp. Even Thomas in 2007 was not an outrageous surprise. He had another 2,35 that year and beat the elite on another occasion. He was top ranked that year


          But these guys were WC winners. You don't find similar upsets in recent Olympics.

          Impossible to pick a winner. Silnov maybe. I like the Drouin pick for 5th! He impressed in the rain a few weeks ago beating Grabarz.

            Poor Drag. Out at 2.16m. Although, at his age it is a victory in that he has made an appearance at the Olympics.
            If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

              Is there a site where you can see jump by jump stats? (throw by throw?)

                Klyugin (he wasn't the top Russian on form, that was Voronin)? Hammad winning a medal? (Yes I know about the rain falling in Sydney.) Wessig in Moscow? They weren't shocks?!

                Yelesina (I know it was the women's event, but she has OG gold and Bergqvist, Cloete and Vlasic don't) also in Sydney? Ritter back in '88?

                  Re: 2012 OG: mHJ–US advances 3 to final

                  Has anyone seen or read an interview with any of the high jumpers? Only 6 over 2.29 is pathetic, there has to be a reason for it.

                            ShUstov missed the final; pretty surprising; DmItrik's pissed! >:-)
                            Kinard looking good.

                              Not to be Debbie Downer, but that may be a bad thing. He has a hard time stringing good performances together.
