    Probably taking some time off to find himself. He hasnít been the same since the scandal before the olympics.

    I donít buy the Morgunov injury thing. I think he is dark horsing. Im probably wrong but who knows.

    He no-heighted at 5.26 in January; no other marks.
    No marks at all for Morgunov.
    Also missing is world and Olympic HJ champion Derek Drouin. In 2017 he completed a decathlon (7150), a hepthatlon (5125i) and had a SB 2.30i. No marks in 2018. This year, 2.13 and 2.14 in April, nothing since.

    Zurich is the DL final, so Morgunov couldn't possibly compete there.

    European pole vault silver medallist Timur Morgunov will make his comeback from injury in Rovereto on Tuesday.
    I didn’t see him on the entry list.

    Yeah, that's Ilya Mudrov and Georgiy Ghorokhov.
    I searched rusathletic for Morgunov, and the only thing that came up wас this, dated April 4:

    Серебряный призер чемпоната Европы в прыжке с шестом Тимур Моргунов (на фото) постепенно востанавливается после операции на ахилловом сухожилии и планирует начать сезон 30 мая на этапе ęБриллиантовой лигиĽ в Стокгольме.

    European PV silver medalist Timur Morgunov (photo) is gradually improving after an operation on his achilles tendon and plans to start his season May 30 in the Stockholm DL.

    Напомним, что Тимур пропустил зимний сезон из-за травмы. Ждут российского прыгуна и на этапе в США Prefontaine Classic, который пройдет в Стэнфорде 30 июня.

    We remind you that Timur skipped the indoor season due to injury. They expect the Russian jumper at the Prefontaine Classic, which will take place in Stanford June 30.

    Организаторы планируют собрать там всех действующих прыгунов, имеющих личные рекорды по 6 метров. Помимо Моргунова на турнир приглашены Рено Лавилленьи, Арман Дуплантис, Петр Лисек, Тьяго Браз, Шон Барбер и Сэм Кендрикс.

    The organizers plan to get together all the current 6-meter jumpers. In addition to Morgunov, Renaud Lavillenie, Arman Duplantis, Piotr Lisek, Thiago Braz, Shawn Barber and Sam Kendricks are invited.

    The tweet from Steven Barnes gives no source; I replied and asked him.

    Now I see on the Italian federation article that Morgunov is supposed to be there:
    " Remaining on the platform, European vice-champion Timor Morgunov will lead the auction, imitated in the javelin by the Lithuanian Edis Matusevicius ."

    That's Google translate for you. Perhaps they confused Morgunov with Mudrov.
    Cheers,

    From the official entry lists for Rovereto, Morgunov won't be there. BTW, from what I found on the web ho broke a thumb or something like that in a foot and had to sit down the summer. Before that, he was nursing an achilles injury. He is announced for Berlin ISTAF, though.
