    I think it was before the relay started. Had it been an American would they have done this? No answer required. Usual Numb nuts coverage of field events. Price was lucky to win on a slow news day.

    11-12 was also 4.70, exceeding the previous record. So if you leave places 9-10 as they are, places 11-12 have higher marks, which would make no sense.

    Oh T&F News gurus, what will you do? I want to tweet accurately!
    Best ever marks for place for 9th through 12th.

    I was surprised at the 12 over 4.70 much more than the lack of no heights

    It was even worse. I was watching two feeds simultaneously. Morris and Sidorova were at 4.95xx when Morris was held up for the intro for your new favorite event. After the mixed race started they resumed the vault.

    I am almost stunned at the extremely small touches that resulted in misses. In fact, I do not recall a single make that was not completely clear; all touches seemed to result in a miss. It was almost like they greased the supports. Isn't there some specification about the roughness of the surface. Can anyone else remember a make where the bar was hit? When you are in the pit when the bar comes down, that means that the bar probably should have stayed on. I have officiated many thousands of jumps and do not recall any that came down with less of a touch than at least four and probably several more here.

    Possibly the high humidity made the pegs and bar a little slippery? Watching the rugby world cup from Japan and lots of comments on the ball being wet - even indoors!

    I also noticed a number of the opening leg runners in the mixed 4x400 before the race had 'tucked' the baton in their clothing before the race. I wondered if one of the reasons for this is that sweaty hands in a humid atmosphere may make the baton slippery.

    One or two slight brushes stayed up, but you are correct that no one hit the bar hard and had it stay. Many slight brushes fell.
