    I think Zhang Guowei can jump 2.40 and maybe higher.. He looks quite a bit like Zhu Jian Hua in his bar clearance with his spread knees but Jian Hua barely had a curved run-up. They also had Ni Chih-Chin who beat Brumel's WR and jumped 2.29 (7-6) in 1970. Record did not count though due to China not being a member of the IAAF at that time. China also has the promising Yu Wang, 2.31 last year.

    Certainly Barshim impressed with his total control and easy looking clearance. Looking ahead for more!!!

        Nope, too technical an event.
        Plus it's field, so there's less passion 8)

        Though pretty excited to have yet another contender to what might be one of the greatest times in HJ history. I mean... only 12 (16 with indoor) athletes ever cleared 2,40 and 5 (!!) (6 with indoor) of them are active right now. Can't say I'm not hoping more join the party!

            Great list.
            But noticed missing was the HS girls Mile.
            That was a fast and DEEP race.
            I'm sure most of the girls (except Aragon!) probably got 1500 PR's!
