    How high will he go in his first professional meet tomorrow? My guess is if the weather is good 6.01. The progression looks great 5.31 5.51 5.61 5.71 5.81 and the kicker straight to 5.91. Then 5cm.

    So strange to think of him as a Pro. He has had three world class seasons as an amateur.

    He's kind of already been a pro for a few years, I'm not sure this will feel very different, other than the new kit.

    The conditions will be very similar to Fayetteville!!!!!

    60F and a slight wind 6mph. The stadium record could be in danger 6.00m.

    with the likelihood of crosswinds, I'd X fingers on a lot of high heights.

    Oh boy I hope not!

    Also the top article on the website with the 10 matchups says every 6meter jumper except Timur Morgunov. But Also Shawncy Barber is not competing at PRE and he did 6 meters indoors.

    at 09:00 this morning I was at the track and there was hardly a cloud in the sky, not a breath of breeze and it was already closing in on 70.

    tomorrow projecting very nicely at this point, weatherwise

    Barber and Morgunov were originally entered and now are not. Nilsen and Walsh and I think Lisek were added instead.

    Note that 6 meter vaulter Lukyanenko is still vaulting, but nowhere near that height in many years, and he is not an ANA so he could not compete at Pre even anyone wanted him to.
