  • Banskobystrická Barshim for the win

    Picking up where he left off, with a new Asian indoor record, Mutaz Barshim jumps 2.40 for the win.

    Protsenko second at 2.33 and Ukhov third at 2.31.

    Will, I am guessing that this is the highest 'opener' ever; the real question is by how much? Is 2015 already on the march to attack 2014's Year of the HJ, or is it the year of the Vertical Jumps?

      In 1987, Patrik Sjoberg jumped a WR 2.41 in Pireás on February 1, which was likely his opener.

        Wasn't his opener, he'd jumped 2.31 two weeks earlier.

          Donald Thomas is back. He cleared 2.31 to place 5th in this competition. He hasn't had a lot of 2.30+ results in recent years.

            Back? He did 2.33 indoors last year. He's better indoors it seems. But unstable as always 2.15 in his third attempt in Banska.
