Her performance should definitely peak PERFECTLY at Beijing. 5.05, 5.06? Unless she gets hurt or the conditions are horrible, there's little doubt in my mind there's going to be ANOTHER new WR for her in Beijing.

I thought she looked better when she cleared 5.03.

Nine jumps with misses at every height... yeah, I don't think she looked quite as sharp today either.

Code: Select all

Rome:                       420 435 445 455 465 470 475 480 485 495 503
1  ISINBAEVA, Yelena   RUS  -   -   -   -   -   o   -   -   o   xo  xo  WR 5.03

Monaco:                             426 441 456 464 471 477 483 493 504
1  ISINBAEVA, Yelena   RUS          -   -   -   -   xo  -   xo  xo  xxo WR 5.04


I really wish Jenn & Isi had faced off more than once in the run-up to Beijing. I think it would've done them both good. Lena says she doesn't pay attention to what the other gals are doing, but her best shot at 5.04 in London didn't come until after Jenn went out. And Jenn's attempts in London seemed to me like they had kind of a "desperate" vibe to 'em. So I think we'd get a better competition next month if they'd met a few more times. I'm a little worried that we'll see them both passing from 4.75 to 5.05, both missing, and Monika Pyrek taking the gold at 4.70 on countback. :dazed:

4.56 was a PR for Aussie Alana Boyd
