    who has the world lead with mPV? I thought I read somewhere here recently someone went 5.80, but I can't find it and don't remember who it was.

    Thanks.

    IAAF Top Lists for 2020 says that Andrew Irwin jumped 5.80m.

    The Arkansas Vault Club Jack Frost Vault Meet results say it was 19-00.25 (I'm guessing this means 19ft and a quarter inch?....I don't understand how to read non metric in track)

    If the goal was 19', then 19' 0.0" would be sufficient, so a mark like 19'0.25" would imply either wanting to best another mark of 19' that was made using Imperial settings (and not metric); 5.80 is 19' 0.35", so it would not qualify. However, if someone was looking at the conversion for horizontal jumps it is slightly different.

    What I think happened is that they put the bar at 5.80 meters. Then, since they were only providing Imperial distances in the reporting, the vertical conversions in the Big Gold Book gives 19' 1/4". So, I bet it was measured metric.

    I don't think it matters to Irwin. He already has a qualifying mark for the World Indoor Championships and the Olympic Games from last year.

    Major overthinking. Most meets, even in HS, are in metric now (NCAA mandates it, as do many state HS assns), so nowadays when you see a mark in Imperial, it is almost always a conversion.

    No high school meets that I know of in Wisconsin are metric. Your making an assumption about what is likely to be the case but it does not make it so. However, if you look at the progression it is almost certainly starting at 4.05 with 15 cm intervals to 4.50 and then 10 cm above that.
