Buddy of mine in the stands said that Jordan warmed up with everyone then walked off before it started. He didn't seem injured or limping.

Becca,

Are they going in groups of 5, or is that all that came in at 5.40?

QUIT HITTING RELOAD EVERY TWO SECONDS, YOU GUYS ARE OVERLOADING THE SERVER. PLEASE LIMIT YOURSELF TO ONCE A MINUTE. I CAN'T UPDATE AS OFTEN WHEN THE PAGES WON'T LOAD.

Bar at 5.50.

The wind picks up to a nice tailwind for Hartwig and he has an awesome looking jump that ends up being a bit of a blow through.

Buller has a nice first attempt clearance, plenty of height.

Toby misses, he goes after it aggressively but it's not particularly close.

Jeremy Scott has a nice looking jump and the bar almost stays but not quite.

---




Norberg comes down on the bar for his first attempt.

Gensic has an awesome looking blow through that is a miss.

Litchfield bails.

Tim Mack blows through and misses. Looked like a slight tailwind.

Jake Pauli has huge height over 5.50 and makes it easily.

Miles blows through. Hartwig waits for the wind, almost times out, then he rattles it but the bar almost stays but then it falls.

Toby misses his second.

Jeremy Scott has big height on his second attempt and makes the bar!

Gensic has big height, brushes thebar on the way down but it wiggles and stays!

Litchfield has a nice looking jump but knocks it off on the way up.

Tim Mack has a rather sloppy looking jump but he contorts his body just right in the air and makes it clean.

---

Derek Miles gets a bigger pole in his hand and has a huge clearance.

Hartwig gets his tailwind and a big clearance.

Toby Stevenson misses his third and is out with a no height. He stqabs his heart with his helmet and falls to the pit. The crowd gives hi ma very long round of applause.

Norberg makes it over on his third.

Paul Litchfield has a nice looking third attempt but it's a miss.

Bar going up to 5.60


Bar at 5.60. Hartwig makes it on his first!!

Buller bails. Norberg bails. Looks like it wasa bit of a headwind.

But it looks like Norberg's standards were off. One side is 30cm different from the other! Looks like they are not counting that as a miss.

Mack has the height but comes down on it.

Jeremy Scot and Brad Walker passed this height.

Pauli has a big tailwind and blows through.

Miles makes it clean on his first. The only person with no misses is Brad who has not come in yet.

Norberg misses.

Buller makes it on his second!

So they made Norberg jump out of order at the end of the last rotation, then jump in order 2 jumps later. He bails.

Norberg passes. Gensic has a nice tailwind which turns into a nice blow through and he is out.

Tim Mack has lots of height but comes down on the bar and ends the day. So far 2/3 of the 2004 Olympians are out.

Pauli passes his third and the bar is going up to 5.65.
