    The HJ/JT combo, incidentally, seems less rare than might intuitively appear; even on the men's side, it's been done on surprisingly high levels.

    The best I could find is 1798 by Wiberg, but the list I used is a couple years out of date and only goes down to 8300-ish. Certainly though it's unprecedented on this level.

    Gataullin jumped 600 and 602 in what I think were consecutive meets in 1989 (they were both indoor WRs, too; Bubka jumped 603 a week later).

    Steve Hooker went 601-606-600 in his first three...

    Not really; the slower 2nd-placers get lanes 7 and 8 (or 8 and 9), which are great lanes in the 200 and 400.

    Yeah, Muhammad has also looked scary-good this year. If she's peaking at all similarly to 2016/17 McLaughlin's not the only threat to the WR.

    With so many players, probably somebody did; but we don't know yet whether that will be scored in a way that allows getting any advantage out of it... which of course is pretty silly in itself.

    The problem with Kendricks is that he seems to have less top-end than the others, at his best he's highly consistent at 59x but he's only ever cleared 600 once. Lisek has done 602 and 601 this month...

    I get 217 for jeremyp.

    Harrison broke the WR at a DL meet, pretty sure it got scored as 45/90.

    Hassan could have seriously challenged Dibaba for the WC gold in 2015 (the year Dibaba broke the WR) if she hadn't been wayyyy behind when the racing at the front got serious.

    Mondo, Morgunov and Lavillenie were all still vaulting at 605 at the Euros last year. Might have happened at some other meet too, not sure.

    Babe might be the women's all-sport GOAT. As a pure T&Fer she lacks the longevity (but still makes JJK's 1988 US rankings look silly).
