    Good idea with respect to the location, not so much with respect to the rules (reward mediocrity, four mediocre jumps can be better can two great ones plus two fouls).

      The conditions with the artifical runway and tactical circumstances just weren't conducive to big marks.

            One of the most pathetic attempts to turn T&F into a circus. The only reason this gets the media attention it does is the location, even german TV, which shows hardly any T&F anymore, wasted some air time on it. So on a sunday afternoon we got to watch a french woman repeatedly jump well below 6 meters, something that wouldn't be worth mentioning anywhere, but because she jumped at the Brandenburger Gate, she got on live tv.

              from where I sit, track on TV is never a bad thing.

              Nor is any time track draws a crowd, which I suspect this did.
