Definately could see Tommy pushing #1 in the USA or World next year if stays healthy and works on some of the technical issues he's run into...

I would love to see another girl come up and challenge Stu for the #1 American in the sport next year, but with the knowledge that there have only been 3 women in the world to jump 16 feet and Stu is starting to become more consistent with those higher heights, I don't see anyone except possibly Dragila if she gets healthy challenging her. There is no one in the US with a high enough PR to make a run at her if she keeps improving as well...

Just my opinion, though I would love to see it, cuz then it would only push the AR closer to the WR and would be a lot of fun to watch at the trials!! :)

Walker (in a WR 6.16)
Hollis (5.85)
Skipper (5.85, the only reason I'd even think he'll clear a bar is that it's at Oregon and that seems to be the only place he jumps well)

Stuczinski (hell why not a WR 5.02?)
Johnson (4.65)
Asay (4.60. She needs a reason not to hang it up for a real job. Maybe this'll do it)
