jennski over 4.55 nicely on a huge blowthrough. kinda crooked and almost hit on the way up but nice chest clearance.

now rogowska is over 4.55 with plenty of room as well.

isi with TWO misses at 4.74m now... this doesn't look good for the win streak.

and they show now that it was indeed her opening height, and it did put her into first place... not sure if that means that everyone else is out...

CORRECTION: Jennski and Rogowska's clearances were at 4.65.

Jenn just had an ENORMOUS clearance at 4.81m. Wow. Seriously a 5m jump. She is clean.

Isi follows with a huge clearance at 4.87m.

This is heating up and they are showing them back to back... here comes Jennski at 4.93m.... and it's a miss but a good jump.

Isi has smoked 4.93! The bar will go to 5.04m and Jenn will pass.

Jenn comes down and misses her first attempt badly, which gives her one more attempt.

Isi comes down and has a decent jump but no good. She will need to make some changes.

Jenn has taken her last attempt and has a bad miss where she about wrecks herself on the standard... that was a bit scary... Isi will have two more but has secured the win.

Isi is getting the clap going and preparing for her second (i think) attempt at 5.04m...... suspense.....

oh and she's missed again just come up a bit short there.

the run looks confident and strong, she just needs to smooth a few things out and she can easily make this bar.
