I was just told she is working with a new coach and scooting her takeoff back getting on longer poles. Can she jump 16' with a good take off from under her top hand?

She is working with greg hull out of phoenix, arizona who is the coach of nick hysong. I personally know this coach and he is an amazing coach. he has indeed, from another arizona coach who knows them well, started to rework a lot of her takeoff, but i have not heard about longer poles. I will have to find out, but yes, i think she is going to be jumping again big here in the future, with her work ethic and ability, she has the oppurtunity to do it.
Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. - Muhammad Ali

She got beat by Feofanova this weekend. 15-5 to 15-1 I believe.
