Oh yikes, I forgot that Jenn Suhr had still not entered the competition! I'm used to Isi being the last one in.

13 cleared 4.50, but Jenn still hasn't come in yet, has she?

I see they are using those automatic standards that are famous for breaking at key moments. Maybe why Pit A started late?

Even if Jenn had not entered, they could have decided to take all 13 girls who cleared 4.50 and only make Jenn jump at 4.55, take 14 if she cleared. Isn't that what used to happen with Isinbayeva?

Silva clears easily.

Isi looks like she's in 5.10 shape.

Suhr over no problem! Decent height, though not as much as Isinbayeva.
