Suhr ready to go now, looks to Rick for wind guidance. Isinbayeva being consoled by her coach.

She seems to be waiting on the wind, taking her time. It looks to be swirling like mad. Clock running down, she has to go anyway... bail.

Another opportunity for Silva. She has already tied her PR, 4.80 will be a new PR and Cuban record if she clears. She certainly seems to have the height in her previous jumps to get over this bar.

Jenn says she had to power through the wind. That was a headwind.

Silva aborts her run before she even takes a step. Asks for a clap again. She takes it up but brushes off the bar on the way up!

Smiling after finishing third? :confused: Okay, who are you and what have you done with the real Isi?

My stepson tells me that on the Russian Olympic forum he's reading, Isi is referred to as "Miss Lady Speed Stick" because she's the advertising spokeswoman for that brand in Russia. And apparently high-profile ad campaigns work like the Madden Jinx in Russia -- none of their big stars have done well thus far at these games.

Third attempts now! Jenn is ahead on misses. The wind is being horrible to both of them.

Jenn up for her third attempt at 4.80. Clearing this will practically guarantee her gold... but she bails! It all comes down to Silva's final jump!!
