Second attempts at 5.97.

Decent attempt for Holzdeppe! He takes it up and is close!

Love that official ;)

Otto up for his second attempt now. He is in the lead but he knows Lavillenie could take it away if he does not clear here.

Lavillenie up for his second attempt. Due to a previous pass, this is his final attempt. A miss gets him bronze and a make would probably get him gold.
