Who exports more vaulters... the US or Russia?

Opening height is 4.30. Passes for Rogowska, Suhr, Strutz. Boyd the first vaulter. Her coach is advising her on the wind.

She bails.

Passes for Bleasdale and Silva. Holliday up next... she is over but hits it off on the way down.

Lots of nerves in boyd & holliday.

EB tells Holliday to back up 4". He is bundled up in the stands. Wind looks like a strong crosswind.

Spiegelburg passes. Ptacnikova clears easily on her first attempt at 4.30, looks very relieved.

Earl Bell is wearing a toque in August. Must be a chilly evening in London!

Ryzih and Isinbayeva pass, so we go to second attempts at 4.30. Boyd takes this one up, but can't line it up and the bar falls.
