Filippidis brushes the 5.50 bar pretty good on the way down but it stays! He had good height on it.

Haha the officials can't be bothered to step up onto the pit to put the bar onto the automatic standards, they have to use putter uppers to get the bar there.

Mesnil looked a little sloppy but makes 5.50 with ease.

Hometown fave Lewis kicks off the bar on the way up. Walker and Holzdeppe pass.

Was that a tailwind I saw?
