    I did a little research project. Has there ever been three men over 6 meters in the same outdoor season? Yes, in 96,97,98,99 and lastly 2008. Never had 4 jumpers in the same year though. With...

    Probably taking some time off to find himself. He hasn’t been the same since the scandal before the olympics.

    I don’t buy the Morgunov injury thing. I think he is dark horsing. Im probably wrong...

    What is important to me is that in almost every meet he is attempting 6 meters. That is a good place to be in for someone that is not near his potential. Hopefully next year that means he is...

    Very happy to see Ajee wilson as the top pick for Doha. Hopefully a nice and permanent return to normalcy in this event.

    Respectfully I think he can:

    6.30 is 20'8" and his PR is 19'10 1/4" . He hasn't reached physical maturity, and is already jumping on monster poles. He has amazing competition to push him and has 8...

    Can’t we just ask Bubka? He has a twitter account. Mondo ran a 10.57. Im sure with dedicated training he could get into the 10.3s.

    I asked Coach K last year when Sam wasnt as consistent as in 2017. They tried a 5 meter pole and then beginning of this year a 4.95 pole. I think they were experimenting because last year was an off...

    That is the world record of push off! Most guys jumping 5.50 are on longer poles than Sam. For reference if Mondo got as much push off as Sam on his 5.20 pole he would be jumping close to 21’

    Last year and the beginning of this year Sam was experimenting with longer poles. 5meter and 4.95 poles. ( I asked his dad) In 2017 and recently he has gone back to his 4.90 poles and the results...

    Muscle cramps :( What a shame!

    Not the worst thing though. World Champs would have been really tough for his senior year of college and maybe even affect the Olympics.

    Going nuts of Kendricks!...

    Aw, that is a shame. Really nice guy. I meant him when he was a senior in high school when he was competing at the Arcadia invite. I coached there.

    Really we need Walsh, Fritsch, and Nilsen to win simply so they can represent three different eras of popular American hair styles.

    I think Mondo is the favorite. Lisek barely cleared 6.02 while Mondo had some serious height on it. Last week at 6.01 too. Though Lisek is on fire.

    Doha should be insane:

    You know I think these guys take off their shirts to specifically prove they aren’t on steroids. Sam s pretty scrawny too. I like this trend, you don’t need to bench press 300lbs to jump 6 meters!

    Yeah that was a huge jump! Standards were off by 5cm. Almost every meet Mondo is taking shots at 6m. Its really good. Looks like he is still figuring out his big poles. When everything lines up I...
