    She's been looking like an exciting talent at least since she took the world U18 title last year. And when she did, she talked of Lasitskene as her idol: https://www.iaaf.org/news/feature/ya...igh-jump-champ
    Her IAAF profile lists her birthdate as September 19, 2001.
    Thus she'll be 17 until Sept 18 of 2019!!
    (If the IAAF date is correct!)

    I guess Vashti’s world record is very much on the endangered species list

    Good! Then we can be even more optimistic about her future.

    Thanks for posting the video, Atticus!
    Yes, Mahuchikh is a great talent. Lots of stuff to like. I think her clearance technique is outstanding. Terrific hip height. Good and fast 9-step run-up.
    The only thing that mystifies me is her alleged bodily height at 1.65 (5-5) Both the EEA and Tilastopaja have that. I can't believe she is 14 cms shorter than Levchenko. Maybe the height is from when she was 16. Who knows? The only world class jumper I know is shorter is Inika McPherson at 1.63 (5-4 1/4). Looking at Mahuchikh in the take-off and comparing with the bar height she looks at least 1.70 I think.

    Because they based the progression on the good chance that Lasitskene would jump 2m, not on the off chance of someone breaking a WR.

    Why go for the tie instead of a 1 cm improvement? Seems like whoever came up with the progression was aware of who was in the competition and could've easily fixed that.

    Lasitskene jumped 2.00 in the same competition a year ago already. Meets in shopping malls are not unheard of - the one in Potsdam where Piotr Lisek vaulted 6 meters last year was of this type.

    Ukraine somehow manages to bring out one HJ talent after another, i wonder how they do it. Do they have a special national coach or is it just coincidence?

    Here's a lesson from a Ukrainian on how to pronounce the Ukrainian 'h': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugIkcW3XwI4 (the relevant part starts after 0:30)

    The first 'h' in Mahuchikh is the second type, i.e. as in 'holod' = famine

    For future reference, wouldn't the first h in her surname be quite a hard sound. More like an English G or K than the softer 'h' in words like happy or hair.

    I'm not a high jump expert, but two things stood out to me on that video:
    1) She is really, really fast on her approach,
    2) She looked to clear that bar by a lot.
