Oh my goodness... they have these remote controlled trucks that are running around the field retuning the discuses. They are really funny.

They are introducing the vaulters now.

QUIT HITTING RELOAD EVERY TWO SECONDS YOU GUYS ARE OVERLOADING THE SERVER

Norberg hits the bar pretty good on the way down but it stays! Apparently he didn't get the memo about today being BLUE day. He is the only vaulter not wearing blue.

Gensic has a big clearance over 5.40.

Litchfield has a nice jump and blows through his pole a bit.

---

Tim Mack makes 5.40 on his first attempt. He makes it clean but it's not a HUGE jump.

Jeff Ryan has a much better looking second attempt but misses.

Paul Litchfield has a nice clearance on his second attempt.

Jeff Ryan has huge height on his third attempt but comes down on it and he is out with a NH
