    And who gets the automatic entry to Worlds?

    I believe the prize money is added up and split, so they would each get $8,000.

    The auto spot for Worlds is the overall winner. The vaulters would likely have a jump off at the finale, just not the regular meets.

    The "auto spot" is actually a wild card. It's up to the athlete's federation to enter or not enter the athlete. Moreover, if a country has two wild cards in an event--one for the defending champion and one for the DL winner--and they are different people, they can use only one of those wild cards.

    The question is, what happens if two pole vaulters (or high jumpers) tie for first in the Diamond League finale and don't want to have a jump off.

    My assumption is most athletes would want the jump off in that situation. But what if they didn't? Can they be co-champions? Would the IAAF give two wild cards? It is a good question...

    ok here is one final hypothetical... when a jump off is in the offing, but one athlete absolutely refuses but the other wants to go on, what then ? Does the one remaining keep jumping, higher or lower depending on his successes or failures until he clears a height, or does the refusing athlete's refusal give him a DQ and an automatic win to the other.. without any attempt(s) needed ?

    The rule is clear on that point. If only one refuses to jump in a jump-off, the other is declared the winner, whether or not he/she jumps. See IAAF Rule 181.9(e).

    This is exactly what happened at the World Indoor Champs in 2014. In the Women's HJ Licwinko and Kuchina were supposed to have a jump-off. However, they both declined and got to share 1st place.

    That's what happened at the 2012 US Olympic Trials when Jeneba Tarmoh and Allyson Felix "tied" in the 100 final.

    The rule only applies to the conduct of running a vertical jump. The OT 100 was an administrative issue outside the scope of the rules, which don't involve themselves with any given meet's qualifyign procedures.
