    It is one thing to be going for big heights with a number of attempts already in your legs, but if you have a bunch at 5.87/5.92/5.97 I would think that the all-out efforts take a toll. When Mondo went 6.05 he had two at 5.80 and then first-time clearances. Of course, having more people in the game also slows things down a bit, which helps.

    I think we will have a VERY exciting competition!
    The progression looks steep. 5.80 might eliminate half of the field, and how many apart from the big 3, plus possibly Braz, can you see clearing 5.87?

    Seems so odd w/o Renaud Lavillenie in the final. Can they let him on the infield as athlete support staff?
