world

championship left christmas representing greece 2015

world

bronze medalist nicoletta carrapoulou jumping at three 11 times the national champion eleven times the national champion of belarus irina zuke going next france national record holder representing france is a really familiar figure there representing the united states of america you jenny first show jumping at six she's been seventh and sixth in the last representing great britain holly bradshaw one of the favorites for this title representing greece is the reigning

world

olympic and european champion katarina stephanie jumping representing switzerland angelico switzerland this year another athlete representing the united states of america katina is the cuban athlete the 2015

world

champion jeremy silva representing venezuela venezuelan pedo jumping at 13 from slovenia 19 times slovenian champion jumping in 14th position it's sandy morris the 2018 commonwealth games champion representing canada it's one of the favorites for this title it's alicia newman four years ago now in beijing still only 26 years of age is angelica benson and she's an authorized neutral athlete angelica siddharova the 17 woman

final

here 460 was the qualification so much depth in this woman's

pole

vault

event really really reminiscent of the men's event these days so this is the first look that we have of holly bradshaw this is the opening height 4 meters 50. not a problem interesting...
women s pole vault final world athletics championships doha 2019
that the scorecard is going 450 and then it's going straight up 20 centimeters to 470 so that supersedes what it took to automatically qualify for this

final

that was 460. so quite a lot of the girls are having an attempt at this only jen sir from the usa has decided not to this is the first time that we look at stephanie d the greek athletes well she hardly got out of third gear there on the runway a lot of these athletes will be using softer

pole

s shorter

pole

s for some of these opening heights they're a little bit easier to bend as the bar goes up we'll expect them to change

pole

s a few times we might not necessarily see that so this is angela moser from switzerland this is the same bar height all of the girls will be coming in at the 4 50 upset for jen's show who's obviously feeling very confident maybe a little bit of a gamble she's going for the next height 470 which is really important that a lot of these ladies decide just to you know get their eye in at these early opening heights so moser she made that look good as well a little bit of a relief sometimes when you clear that opening bar of course this is a game of strategy you don't want any failures in these early bar clearances if athletes tie on the same height of bar it goes back on countback so any early failures do go against you one of the three athletes in the united states of america katie najat she's been in great form this year she's tipped for a medal in fact you...
women s pole vault final world athletics championships doha 2019
can't call it there's you know five or six athletes they beat each other regularly on the circuit maybe stefan edie has the advantage over a few a few actually fancy zina rover as well but that was a nice clearance there sandy morris what an experienced campaigner she is second best

pole

vault

er in history yeah she was second on countback london two years ago ended up with the silver stefan edie getting the gold on that occasion oh my goodness 5 meters 50 and there was distance between herself and the bar sandy morris has struggled this season with a little bit of injury she said it's been quite a frustrating season for her but look at that concentration the focus even though 450 is well below the capabilities of these ladies it's such a tricky event they have to keep the focus at every single jump so this is alicia newman she's third on the

world

rankings in

2019

she's improved the national record three times this year outdoors all the way to 482 looked good winning the diamond league in paris earlier this season oh 4 meters 50. she looked like she took off a little bit too soon she had the height but she came down on the bar just going back looking what she did wrong getting a feel for the what it feels like to plant that

pole

so as i say it's a game of strategy she'll have two more attempts at this height of course but she will have an x by her name a lot of these other ladies have already cleared it on the first time occasion so if it does...
women s pole vault final world athletics championships doha 2019
come up to a higher height and she ties on that height with someone else they will go ahead of her because of that early bar failure this is a great athlete angeletta bakistan from sweden she's two-time

world

junior champion and she's gone out to 481 this year really coming through now on the senior ranks and that was a great clearance she'll be happy with that taking a little bit longer of course 17 athletes so there'll be a little bit more time than usual between these attempts there's some really great height on that she liked it so this is one of the athletes who looks one of the favorites for the title this is inner rover she's had some great battles this year particularly with stephanie and stephanie's got such a great car doesn't she reigning

world

european an olympic champion but on this season's form eight competitions between the two of them zidarova has actually beat stephanie five of those eight occasions so this is silva the cuban athletes she's meddled at these

world

championships

on the last three occasions can she make it a fourth and again making light work of this opening bar and alicia newman from canada we can let you know that she did clear the bar on a second attempt so that's everybody good to go 17 athletes will go on to the next bar for me to 70. jennifer sur from the us this is the first time we're gonna see her she opted out at the first bar height of 450 oh and she believed in herself didn't she...
saved a little bit of energy the other

women

have had to have a couple of attempts at 450 just took her just the one she's indicating to her husband rick there what to do with the uprights they can set them at different widths and she's saying we need to move it back holly bradshaw finished in fifth position on sixth position at the previous two olympic games it took her one height 460 to qualify in the qualifying a couple of days ago 450 at her first attempt and she follows that with a first-time clearance at 470. these early bar heights are really important really important for that countback the bar is going to go up to 480 and that'll sort a lot of the

women

out at that height 470 is real international heights so to be clear in 470 at a

world

championship

final

is really really important katarina stephanie d what will the next hour or so hold for her so dominant on the circuit for a number of years four times the winner of that diamond league the past four years and that was a lovely clearance you like that again another athlete to go clear at four meters 70. so here we have katy najat so too will she attempt 470 and the same results again perfect conditions inside this arena hardly a breath of air this will really help the ladies really good stable conditions allows them to control a lot of things this is sandy morris from the usa oh and that's a fantastic clearance she's happy with herself i wonder whether six months or so ago when she's had lots...
of injuries wonder whether she actually thought that she would be at these

championships

she's given herself a chance two first-time clearances four meters 50 negotiated four meters 70 negotiated 4 meters 80 will be a next attempt and these are fascinating images aren't they as you can see the ladies almost curl themselves they arc themselves over that bar at the top this is alicia newman it took her two attempts at 4.50 but first attempt here at 470 yes well she needed that didn't she she grimaces somewhat going over to get a little bit of feedback presume her coach is over there that's what she'll be doing she'll be making decisions now whether she needs to change up the poll that was actually a really short poll you could see when she actually left herself and she threw them almost throw the bar away they pushed the bar up to help them get towards that bar height but she actually had quite a short

pole

there so she'll definitely need to take out a longer

pole

to help her get that extra 10 centimeters or so for the 480. alicia benson the swedish athlete this is her first attempt nope well she'll have to go again so here we are this is lisa riceich the german athlete this is her

final

attempt at four meters 70. no well disappointment on her eyes a few tears coming into those eyes of course it wouldn't be normal if she didn't feel the emotion if she didn't feel disappointed she's worked hard to get here a season's best of...
463 so she was asking a lot of herself great images there of the

women

as they all go undergo their own individual preparations yeah just catches it with her thigh on the way down well she is a

world

championship

final

ist angelica benson the swedish athlete two times the

world

junior champion been in great form this year 481 personal best this is her third attempt and she's got it oh benson goes clear and the swedish flags are being thrown oh she's happy she'll go on to negotiate the next bar goes up 10 centimeters to 4 meters 80. and our

championships

lives on quite a nice crowd gathered actually watching that

women

's

pole

vault

work very well jensen just doing a few

final

preparations you see she's spraying her hands with that black tack that you'll see a lot of the athletes putting on their hands some use tacks some use chalk maybe a little bit more attack needed on an evening like this it's quite hot inside the arena well whilst we wait to see the next bolt the multiple

world

decathlon champion and former

world

record holder dan o'brien is getting down there amongst it for us and he's alongside a man who knows a thing or two about

pole

vault

ing sam kendricks one of the favorites for gold in the men's

pole

vault

thanks rob thanks jenny i am here with the defending champion here in the

pole

vault

uh sam you see you said this is your third

world

championship you're coming back to defend but you you take the time here to come out...
and watch the

women

this is a pretty familiar setting you guys are a very close-knit group in the

pole

vault

yeah you know i'm real happy to be here for my third championship and i don't often get the chance to be a spectator and so when they give us an extra day between the prelim and

final

i wanted to use that spare night to come support the

women

we get to look at jen shore here how about her career i mean how influential you know was she when when you first started jumping well i can only describe ginger as a force you know her and her rivalry with yolanda symbia back in the late 2000s and 2010s is is legendary it really is i am so proud of her for making this team because she's she is the veteran she really is even in this competition she started higher than everyone else that's a very veteran move to take you know when i got over here and we started talking i asked you if you were assisting anybody in particular and you said no no but you know you're not wearing the red white and blue you got a gray t-shirt on tonight doesn't mean you're neutral does it no not at all well i do have a lot of friends on the track tonight and as you as you travel around the stadium in this familiar circle you do get recognized a lot and i really wanted these athletes out on the field to be highlighted well we've also got some uh former former champions and medal winners here tonight uh coaching some of the american athletes as we see a miss there from jen uh...
you know jeff hartwig is here brad walker certainly and you uh you uh you took brad walker's american record but it's great to see those guys coaching these young ladies absolutely you know there's only so many ways you can get back to the sport and the best direct way is to influence the the top levels because that has to trickle down the athletes they when they go back home they're going to take the things they learned this championship to the next generation of athletes i hope to do the same with the young guys that are on my squad now when i see guys like jeff and brad and others a smattering of olympians

world

champions and many other champions besides in this crowd i say well this is the place to be if you're really interested in the event well and you're sitting with a pretty popular frenchman there he came up to watch with you he looks like he's trying to stay undercover as well yeah you know renault this is his first

final

not to make in a while renee villani the reigning

world

record holder um but his brother he's here to support his brother and his french teammate ninom here tonight so i'm really proud of him even though he didn't have to be out here he could have been on a plane home he says he's a true fan a true friend of the sport and we have a great time just watching the first row kind of incognito well outside of the

pole

vault

what are some of the events you enjoy watching most absolutely love the triple jump so...
this is a great night for me to watch will clay and christian taylor battle it out once again i don't know when you get the chance to see these guys go to head to head very often i'm on the diamond diamond league i'm in every meet i get to go to and i just i seize the chance when i get to watch these moments because a lot of times i have to focus on my lane on the track you think you think a

world

record could go in either the triple jump and maybe tomorrow night the 400 meter hurdles absolutely you know when you when you get this melting pot this this this slew of dynamite thrown together with these athletes that have been building up this entire season you don't know what could happen i want to see something like that happen in my event and so even as you get that mix of emotion and preparation together that's it that is how you make a championship effort and championship effort often comes with records well then this late spring early summer you uh you managed 606 at the u.s

championships

you had the competition won but you continued to jump there were just good things going on that day why were the conditions so right for you to jump so high at that time well the thing i like to say about elite athletes is they they're all so good that they're good together uh it's not often that you can claim that that moment is yours we have katarina stephanie on the track right now an olympic champion a

world

champion she knows when to put that moment...
together but she knows that it's not coming every single day and you have to seize the moment and see it for what it is when the time arises and that was me this july when i had the chance to go from the american record and i got to do it in my own time zone which is real special well it was the highest jump in the last 25 years let's talk about conditions here in the stadium um you know we've got some artificial air here in the stadium and it makes for a nice situation for these athletes because they can cool down just a little bit it's not as hot in size as it is outside but what do you like what you do what do you dislike about the situation of the

pole

vault

here in the stadium well it's absolutely counter-intuitive when you come to

doha

and you step off the plane out of the airport and you say absolutely this is the hottest place i've ever been in my life and you come into the stadium and it's pleasant and everyone is maybe wearing a long sleeve shirt and comfortable but when you go back to walk on the bus or go out to the warm-up track there you start to need your water and your electrolytes again now i can tell you from first-hand experience it's a very pleasurable experience on the track considering what the training environment has been like here in

doha

for the last week for these athletes the marathoners the race walkers we got the best of it all right here the artificial air does make a difference it pushes a massive amount a...
massive volume of cool dry air across the track and that can impact how these jumpers interact with the runway and their

pole

s well let's maybe get a prediction from you we've got all the we've got all the principals still in and you said one of the things that you noticed that this was the first time that you saw a

final

that everybody made a bar and that and i've had to think about that as well it's like really is it that uncommon it truly is they even said a very aggressive progression today 17

women

in this

final

and i noted to dan that every girl made a bar every woman came here and executed a complete jump made a bar and they get to go home with some success i don't see that happen very often and i've been to a bunch of

championships

at many different levels that these

women

are ready to jump they're ready to compete now when it comes down to predictions i always like to throw five ladies in the mix because you never know whose day it's gonna be it's we got three americans in the hunt a great russian angelica sidrova a canadian and also the greek so i threw six in there but i don't i don't i don't want to decide between my american dogs in the fight all right sam good luck to you thank you for your time thanks dan so i really enjoyed the insights early of sam kendricks thanks to diane o'brien it's not what you know it's who you know how the saying goes we saw these ladies having a lot of difficulties at...
four meters 80 and rightly so this is the sort of height that will sort out the medalists jenser failed at the first attempt so did bradshaw stephanie d and najot can sandy morris take advantage and she can that was a fantastic

vault

well what has sandy morris done she's give herself a fantastic chance of taking one of those medals what a great shot as she actually looks up at the bar she actually starts smiling as she comes down on it oh it's gonna take these girls to go first attempt at 485 to actually improve their scorecard now that was a real really important jump really important clearance for sandy morris so this is alicia newman this is her attempting 480 for the first time she had a failure early on at 450 first time clearance is 70. and knocks that bar off for the first time at 4 meters 80. oh sandy morris she was second in the u.s

championships

silver two years ago the same color medal that she took the year before that in rio stephanie won that as she did the gold in london but this athlete is one of the athletes that canada are really looking at as i said earlier counter didn't win a single medal two years ago they've already got two in the pocket from these

championships

but alicia newman is in a really tough competition here i would actually say never has a depth of this

women

's

pole

vault

bin is so strong and this is the swedish athlete benson it took her three attempts at 470 personal best for 81. she's getting right up there with...
this next attempt at a 480 bar so here we go lots of speed on the runway oh and it wasn't bad was it it was a decent attempt i think she'll take some confidence from that she just puts a

pole

down she'll walk over to the coach get a little bit of feedback but that was that was a good attempt yeah she's happy so technical of course this event so many different phases that the athletes have to go through it's really important the psychology of this event as well obviously the event of your competitors not the bar down that gives you a greater chance but i've been speaking to holly bradshaw the british athlete quite a bit recently and she said that you really have to just sit alone ignore what your competitors are doing think about yourself if they fail a bar of course it goes to your advantage but only if you can clear the bar as well so it's very much an individual event have to keep yourself focused throughout well this is another one of those favorites some kendricks mention this athlete the authorized neutral athlete the russian athlete zidarova she's been in cracking form so far this season oh and there we go four meters 80 as well to join sandy morris that was a really important clearance for her 491 personal best so she has gone over the height of 480 quite regularly she won the match europe versus the usa a couple of weeks ago a couple of silver medals at the

world

indoors no appearances surprisingly at the

world

outdoor

championships

...
this is her first

final

and there won't be too many

women

who clear this 480 bar this is the second attempt now for sure two girls gone clear so far at this height oh and she just drifted off didn't she's the left-hand side there four meters eighty not many of the

women

in this field have done that this season just looking through the cards there we've got morris and sidorova first time clearances at 480. all the other girls had bar failures at the first height we're just looking back on there it always looks like they've got the height but you need to propel yourself further height alone isn't good enough these athletes have to work really really hard to get their measurements and their accuracy right on the runway the position at plant then it's a off you can see holly bradshaw there just going through her row familiar routine interesting to see on a necklace there i think she's got a union jack and i think she's got the rio flag as well those two little pendants must signify the two olympic games that she's competed in that's nice touch and here she goes holly bradshaw four meters 80 and she joins with that 480. this is stephanie at the same time and again four

women

over that 480 bar this competition is really really hotting up kate and his shots what can she do this is her second attempt the pressure will be on somewhat and kate and his shot now to join the other four

women

no it was a good attempt there wasn't much...
between himself and the bar there for

women

go clear well drama everywhere in this arena this is newman can she get over the 480 bar and she can five

women

clear at four meters eighty this is shaping up to be one of those competitions of dreams for these five

women

morris of course and zina rover first time clearances bradshaw stefan edie and newman second time clearances oh it was good wasn't it looks like she's on a higher bar now than what she was at 470 and she's delighted so jen shaw third attempt now at four meters eighty she needs this bar to continue in the competition oh it's not for her this evening she took that gamble didn't she it paid off not to start at 450 should have first hand clearance at 470 and that's been our only clearance of the evening she'll finish in joint 6th position we can see jen shaw there 37 years of age now absolutely remarkable to still be making the u.s team so difficult of course to get on the team in so many disciplines but to make a

world

championship

final

as well she's done amazingly well so this is a american patriots this is najjat she's going for a third attempt also at the 480 bar and she needs this oh oh she had it didn't she she did rattle it on the way up she had a look she must have known that she rattled it these athletes get a sense of that she looked up almost willing it to stay on she'll be so so disappointed so much respect and camaraderie between all these athletes very much...
like there is in the men's equivalent they compete against each other all the diamond league competitions and the lower competitions none of them try to hide and avoid each other and she had it didn't she but she just caught it there on her way down or you could just see it was just her chest oh that's agonizing for her on another day that bar would have stayed on but not the day she wanted it to so this is silva this is the brazilian three-time medalist at their three last

world

championships

and she's in the same situation no she just didn't have the speed on the runway she knew as soon as she planted the

pole

it wasn't to be so just aborted the jump it's a shield finish on four meters 70. and this is not a sight that we want to see i can tell straight away that angelica is okay she's signaling to the crowd actually don't worry i'm okay so we're just looking now angelica benson we're just watching that third attempt wow so really fortunately you know it's something that you see in a comic book the end of her poll projects almost into the stands there actually a little bit of concern there her for her and a coach but she looked fine we do understand as the rules go that she can continue in the competition we're just wondering whether she's going to get a poll that was one of the larger polls whether she's going to actually some of the girls will let her borrow her poll she's very entitled to this is a...
fascinating that was a second attempt so she does have one more attempt at the 480 distance really fortunately it doesn't seem to have affected her too much psychologically she's talking to sandy morris there she's looking around athletes are entitled to use any poll so even if the athletes bring their own polls just wondering whether we can actually throw down to dan o'brien dan you're there can you give us a perspective of the chat what's going on down there well it's really interesting guys she's she didn't have the

pole

that she wanted in her bag she was asking some of the other competitors if she could borrow one of the

pole

s because you get to this you get to this height just wondering whether we've lost on there no no i'm here guys i apologize yep she got romeron was the one that let her borrow a poll i apologize there was trying to figure out who exactly that it was but this is the

pole

vault

community they really support each other and you heard that from sam kendrick they come out and they are essentially an international club and she's over absolutely wonderful and they have a wonderful crowd down here everybody is on their feet and it was nice that the officials gave her a little extra time and she was searching in a number of different banks and everybody was willing to lend her the poll that she needed she found the right numbers the ones that were working in her progression and over she went what a fascinating...
story i think if i was angelica parker and i want to actually have that

pole

i'll be saying through marin you know yeah it's yours but uh you know this is my 480

pole

absolutely fantastic in the arena to actually hear the crowd being so ecstatic they witnessed something that was potentially very very risky and qualifying there just one centimeter away from her personal best what guts what maturity from a young athlete to come back from potentially really you know dangerous activity there she had to attempt an event you know with a new poor a new bar absolutely unbelievable well there's no doubt the crowd have got a new favorite it went absolutely wild in here because nobody really thought she could do it so brave so composed this really is developing into a sensational

final

it is five

women

clear now we were hoping that we would have a sixth so that was the bella russian athlete she had two attempts already two failures at 480. she decided that she was going to have an attempt at 4.85 she could have got an advantage if she managed to clear that first time but unfortunately she didn't so 470 will be her best height of this whole

vault

final

back to holly bradshaw in this incredible

pole

vault

competition bar now at 485 not on that occasion but that first time clearance at 4 meters 70 could really prove helpful joint third at the moment with the brilliant defending champion katarina stefaniede this would be the best performance of her career by far but there...
could be a long way to go i think they could there's still a lot of ladies in at this height 485 would be a season's best for bradshaw her best come quite a few years ago now 487 indoors remember those stable conditions versus unstable outdoors and this is stephanie this is her first attempt at 485 sunday morris then from the united states of america this is her first attempt at the bar 485 and she does it she has got a clear card she's almost not put her foot wrong this evening she can't quite believe it first time clearances at every bar 450 yes 470 yes 480 yes 485 yes four jumps four clearances that puts her in the driving seat she already was in the driving seat that's just enhanced it look at that determination she wants this she pushes the

pole

forward that's what these competitors have to do when they release they try to get their hand up to the top of the bar and then they push it forward all the way are themselves over that bar and what a great exponent of the event consider over there oh anything maurice can do so can i that was a great clearance so a similar card for both of these athletes maurice and zidarova bradshaw and stephanie in joint third at the moment that's due to their second attempt clearance at 480 for the first time a clearance at 450 and 470 very importantly okay here she goes this is bradshaw first time attempt at 485 no oh that's her second attempt actually that would be her outdoor personal best if she could get...
it stephanie like bradshaw the complete same scorecard so far can she go ahead of bradshaw now on countback by getting a clearance at this yes she can she puts herself into the bronze medal position solo that'll drop bradshaw down to fourth position so three

women

so far clear 485. bradshaw of course has still got another attempt as alicia newman so here she goes third attempt for newman it was close wasn't it not as close as benson of course she's just having a quick word with the judge there it really is fascinating to see these images these slow motion images these

women

have got to get the speed they've got to get the angle they've got to get the trajectory they've got to launch themselves up push that

pole

forwards then they've got to get themself upside down and arch over the bar absolutely incredible this is her big occasion this is third attempt 485 needs this to stay in the competition and it's not to be that will be a fifth place finish felicia newman here this evening clearance at 480. it was a second attempt at that 480 bar she did a second attempt at the 450 bar her opening board sir 480 her best height this evening she's had a great season picked up her first diamond league win and she really has put herself in medal contention even some kendricks couldn't separate these ladies he named six of them human being one of them but her campaign ends in fifth position this is the

final

attempt now for angelica benson this is...
the borrowed poll don't forget she warmed the hearts of the crowd but she'll go away from these

championships

really really happy fourth position in 2015 of course six here but such a mature attempt there okay so bradshaw she decided to miss her third attempt at 485 it wouldn't have done her any good she needs to get 490. she has one attempt at this bar it's not a bad one actually that will see her outside the medal she'll finish in an agonizing fourth position but a really good attempt at at 490. so the bar is at 490 for the three remaining competitors sandy morris this is her first attempt clear bars at 450 70 80 85. can she carry on the process at 4.90 and she can oh the crowd have just erupted in this arena they're just realizing what they've seen here this evening this is a fairy tale competition for sandy morris she can't quite believe it and she needs to still remain really composed she might have to go up to the next bar there's still a few girls that could really push her forwards here but she looks like she's up for it this evening doesn't she you see those eyes as she's coming down the runway she's planting that

pole

she knows exactly what she's doing she's such an established athlete over numerous years and uh really great to see an athlete in great form here today well this will definitely have put the pressure on the russian athlete the authorised neutral athlete of course did her over she has to match...
morris and she does oh my goodness what a championship

women

pole

this is turning out to be two athletes first timer clearance at four meters 90 that's just one centimeter short of zina rovers personal best well these are the last few moments of this

women

's iwf

world

championships

pole

vault

final

what is sandy morris thinking at this moment in time clearances that every bar she's attempted so far just needed four five attempts so far some of the other athletes have had quite a few attempts had to have second and third time clearances stephanie in particular but here she goes 495 could this be the gold medal decider she shakes her head she has two more attempts of course so this gold medal contention carries on this is it she has the same scorecard as morris up to this point five volt five clearances morris of course the bar just came down on a first attempt at 4.95 what will be the outcome of zidarova's first attempt and they're completely even marched it continues the first time failure visit a rover that would have been a personal best for her this is stephanie she passed her second attempt at 490. she's had one this is her 495 first attempt second attempt beg your pardon this is where her competition finishes she's picked up a bronze medal a medal of any colour in this

women

's

pole

vault

is such a fantastic achievement what a performance from sandy morris amazing so far yeah these ladies in the

pole

vault

had to just wait...
for a moment proceedings were suspended momentarily but here we go again this is spine tingling stuff as we watch sandy morris and anzel cinderova battle it out for that gold medal their scorecards are exactly the same they can't be separated thus far oh and i thought morris was over there and she knows how close that was she just brought the bar down on her way down to the mat herself oh she's got that distance doesn't she she's got that height she knows it agonizingly close of course at this stage you don't want to go away with that silver medal that's the color of the medal that morris got two years ago in london at these

championships

there we can see a great angle again and she just nicked it didn't she on her way down at this point the competitors actually get upside down they arc themselves over over the bar oh yeah she just catches it there with her stomach it wasn't as close as katie nigel earlier on when she actually landed first the bar was still there but then it landed on her so here we go can zidarova be the first woman to clear this 495 bar here this evening if she can morris will have to go at five meters she closes her eyes she has a little look back she just checks worse she's going to put her hands on the

pole

and here she goes plenty of speed on the runway but it was just wrong because she planted the

pole

yep she knew that the red flag went up this is the third attempt for sandy morris of the united states of america...
495 bar she won the silver two years ago clearing the same height as stephanie but she lost that gold on count back can she go one better here this evening and that was her best attempt the crowd thought she got it she thought she got it for a moment but she'll be delighted with her performance here only zidarova now can spoil her party at the moment as it stands they'll share the gold medal if zadarova goes clear morris would be in the silver medal position and you can see she grimaces she holds her hand as if to say oh it's so close angelica zinarova could this be her moment this is probably the most important junk of her career so far and she does litterova goes clear for the third attempt 490 a lifetime best and she's tearful that's what it means for her and how amazing of sandy morris she was cheering from her from the sidelines even though she knows if she cleared it that would result in her getting a second silver medal for a second consecutive
