Aw c'mon guys. Eaton going for a PR in the HJ and you cut away to the women's 200?
bruce3404
Thanks for breaking away from the women's SP and going over to the men's HJ. I'm sorry we had to miss a round of the MSP. Please remember that we've got two solid medal hopes on the men's side and it's doubtful than any of the women in this competition will stand on the podium.

Please. Also, thank you for bringing this to everyone else. It is really neat and rarely done.

During the high jump can you show the other pit between jumpers on the near pit rather than show them talking to coaches?

MultiFan

Sorry we had to cut away from Ashton's 2.13 HJ, but we couldn't miss the Hep 200s. We got it on video though with our second camera, so it will be on-demand shortly. We also have tons of other videos to post on-demand, so check back for those. Hope everyone enjoyed day 1, see you tomorrow!

Thanks for at least replaying Eaton's jumps. In fact, thanks for covering this meet.
