20 + 8


#1

Lavillenie jumped 6.08 which works out to just over 19’ 11"

With Bondarenko jumping 2.41 outdoors last year, Ukhov the same indoors this year and Barshim hitting 2.40 last year could we have a year where we see 8’ and 20’ conquered?


#2

Ever wonder how high Bubka could’ve gone in his prime, had he just let it rip instead of milking WR bonuses?


#3

Tough to say Eva. He sure did milk it though.

Ukhov hits 2.40 with Dmitrik joining him.

6.00- 6.01- 6.03- 6.05- 6.06- 6.07- 6.08- 6.09- 6.10- 6.11- 6.12-6.13- 6.14 and indoor steps to 6.15 are also impressive
35 movements of the WR in all


#5

Yea, in a perfect world that would not (the bonuses) have been an issue, but being a Soviet citizen at the time he was played for pay. I really hope no one faults him for that.


#6

Whelp. 20 is in the books. 8?


#7

Ukhov now 2.42

I was in MSG when John Thomas went over the bar at SEVEN FOOT Millrose Games Jan 31, 1959

2.42 = 7’ 11 1/4"
2.43 = 7’ 11 1/2"
2.44 = 8’ (Sotomayor 1989)
2.45 = 8’ 1/2" (Sotomayor 1993)
2.50 = 8’ 2 1/2"
