    The future of wHJ looking bright. As stated, Mahuchikh is barely 18, but also Demidik is 20, Cunningham and Levchenko 21. Lasitskene at 26 probably still has a long career ahead of her.

    why end with failures when you can go out with such a positive?

    Indeed ... but maybe totally spent, etc. Will be interesting to see interviews on that.

    Lasitskene was pretty terrific today! Hope she can take the Olympic title next year.

    In the press conference, Mahuchikh noted she usually retires after a personal best, but told her coach she felt good and went for 2.04. She noted that she felt not yet ready for 2.06 and will be ready in in a few years.

    Lasitskene also said 2.08m is the Russian national record which is why she goes for that instead of the WR height. She is also extremely light hearted and smiling all the time here, complete contrast to her in the field.

    Mahuchikh is a very exciting prospect for the Olympics. I love how, as opposed to her rivals who go across the bar, she goes up and down. In the long run that will allow her to achieve even greater heights than them. She could threaten the world record some day. She really impressed me a lot.

    This makes no sense unless you've already won the competition.

    This makes just as little sense. Many WRs/NRs/PRs are set when the athlete didn't feel ready.

    Hopefully, she's not really being coached like this and she's just a typical 18 year old knucklehead.

    I agree it doesn't make much sense, but she was probably just overwhelmed by the situation.

    Go read gh's comment; I don''t think that you have an athlete's perspective at all. You remind me of a bunch of my economist colleagues who just don't get it that there is a real world where emotion, passion, etc.
