Yes, Barber passes his 2nd attempt at 5.95. Bar is now at 6.00.

Clearly, Barber cares more about winning than about PBs or NRs.

He also cares more about 6.00 than anything lower. He's had his eye on 6.00 for quite a few weeks now. :yes:

Barber misses 6.0 on his 1st and only attempt. He's out. :crying:

Congratulations to both Shawn and Renaud on this exciting meet!

So it's ...

1. Renaud Lavillenie 5.95

2. Shawn Barber 5.85

3. Konstantinos Filippidis 5.80

4. Sam Kendricks 5.65

5. Robert Sobera 5.55

6. Raphael Holzdeppe 5.55

I don't know if Lavillenie will keep jumping. He has one more attempt available to him at 6.00.
