How about Oscar Janson of Sweden upping his PR from 5.63 (18'5 3/4") to a world leading 5.87 (19'3 1/4") on Sunday? If you're gonna PR, might as well do it in style.

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

Sorry if I seem a little anal but 5.87 converts to 19'3" :P . Still a great jump for him. I don't think I'd ever heard his name before now.
