    Crap! We USED to be able to post images here - gh, turn that back on!!
    It's a very cool photo. I did a Google image search and there were no matches.

    What's another way to post a picture that everyone could access with a Facebook or Instagram, etc. account?

    I was told that this aggressive progression was adopted after 16 guys qualified for the final.

    Watched an interview with Shawn, he says he has not signed with an agent yet.

    I stand by my earlier statements...

    I agree about the progression, I thought for the men's competition it was due to 16 starters but for 14 women it's still the same sharp rise. It will be important to hit 4.70 with the first attempt, this might be enough to snatch a shared bronze medal like in the men's competition.

    I felt they spoiled the final in 2009 in this way. 4.65 was immediately followed by 4.75, which only one vaulter cleared. It could have been a much better competition had they been allowed to try at 4.70.

    Thanks.
    It's pretty tough. Many medals have been won at 4.75 (all of Feofanova's, I think), but they're skipping it.

    I looked on the IAAF site for the lineup, but I did not see the progression of heights. Kiriakopoulou is last in the order, the "cat-bird seat".

    Just don't ask me to make any predictions about the women!

    Worth repeating this post
