    Brits peaked at 21. He did have some confidence issues after his NH at the '96 OG but watch video of 21 yo Brits vs 25 yo Brits. He lost his wheels and wasn't as agile. He also had about 15 pounds of...

    Nilsen's issue is going to be his size. He's already a huge guy. That's a lot of mass to move to vertical. If he isn't done maturing, he could put on more bulk which will hamper his development.

    Fritsch was great. I would not have been surprised if he had jumped 5.85. Every clearance was enough for that height. He just ended up taking too many jumps. For his last 2 attempts, he didn't even...

    Mondo looked good. He was under a bit on his misses. Still had plenty of height but barely tapped it off each time. I think if he could've left the bar up on his first attempt at 5.90, he would've...

    Here are the only two videos of him jumping on youtube. From these two examples, I'm shocked he jumped 23 feet. There's nothing in either jump that suggests 26' is remotely possible.

    In this day and age when everything is filmed, I find it hard to believe there's not one phone video of his 26'6". If it was legit, there'd be video of it.

    While they're measuring 6.17, I'd have dad on the phone with [insert shoe company] verifying there's a retroactive WR bonus since he's most likely a pro the next day.

    What was the best mark for the Spanish style JT? From that youtube video, it appears that one throw was like 25m. Also, was the flight like a normal throw or was it end over end? I hope the latter.
