    How many of his marks are in the top 10 if ancillary marks are counted.

    Cunningham also went over 2m but she had 1.99 already 3 years ago. This should make her the 7th American over 2.00.
    Mahuchikh also had a 1.99 indoors, this January. She is somewhat inconsistent, with this sequence of marks in 2019: 1.96i, 1.99i, 1.96i, 1.90i, nh (1.84)i, 1.96 Doha, 1.83 Stockholm, 1.85 Oslo, 2.00 Stanford. Yesterday, she had a miss at 1.79; she was WAY over the bar but came down on it, and her miss at 1.92 was similar.

    Ukraine is very rich in women HJers right now, with Levchenko, Mahuchikh, Herashchenko, Okuneva, Chumachenko all at 1.92 or better.

    We were sitting in section 7, row 5, and couldn't see the HJ pit at all, but we could see the info board. We had a great view of the SP, and not much else. It was definitely the worst view of a meet I've ever experienced. Fortunately, I recorded the NBC telecast and have all the streams on NBC Gold. After we got home Monday, I watched W HJ in its entirety. Vashti was quite subdued in her celebration after clearing TWO, but Mahuchikh showed unrestrained joy.

    They have been historically strong on both men's and women's side, with people like Brumel or Yashchenko.

    To be fair to Gabriella, this thread took a vicious and nasty turn when some posters went after a certain middle distance runner.

    Young, Samba, Bronson and Matete have one each

    Young was bumped down to #11 by Benjamin's effort

    Benjamin's next best performance is outside the top 50 alltime, whereas Moses has 14, Samba 6, Young 5, Sanchez 4
    That simply underscores Moses' greatness!

    Not that my opinion matters, but I second the above opinion! Like a certain someone said: "...negativity won't pull you through"

    Any consensus on why the mens 400, womens 100 and mens 110 hurdles was so slow? I thought it might have been the track but the mens 100m and mens 400m hurdles showed otherwise. I was there in the stands and the wind was completely still. It wasn't that hot either. Maybe 80s. Seemed really really strange. Maybe they all had a poor warm up area???
