    Which of course is bad news in terms of his potential. You're basically claiming he's already technically as good as it's humanly possible.

    There are no European Champs this year. Unless you're thinking European Junior Champs, which shouldn't be much of a challenge for him.

    Mayer gets 5.40, so the record should go. 6500 might be a stretch, but he could move to no. 2 all time.

    Mayer passing 5.00 as well :eek: Urena looks on course for a pretty big score, too. Currently 18 points up on his PB (6249) schedule.

    Mayer certainly isn't playing it safe. They're at 4.90 and he's still not entering the competition.

    The point table on the EAA site doesn't include a couple of events and Sweden is actually third behind Germany and Poland, but still a great showing.
