    McCartney opens up at 4.60. Easy clearance fist attempt - looked to have at least 30cms

    then straight to 4.75. First attempt. Was way over the bar but came down on top of it.

    and over - 3rd attempt. Worst jump of the 3, but hey, its the best because she got over.

    Bar going up to 4.85
    If cleared it will be a NZ national record as her 4.90 from last week was not able to be ratified.

    Morgan Leleux went out at 4.50 - not sure what she cleared.

    Valerie - 5 throws over 18m. Val comments that her 18.48 was her PB-PB "Post Baby Personal Best"

    McCartney readying for attempt 3 at 4.85m

    Toth and untainted??? He tested positive later the same season he threw 22.67.

    I'd buy the claim for Walsh as WR-holder. Great story all round.

    Thanks for that Powell. Didnít know that about Toth. Then I guess Walsh is probably the true WR holder
