Will Isinbayeva be on the cover of the meet program tonight? Will that jinx her? So far the covers have featured:
Day 1: Steve Hooker (NH in prelims)
Day 2: Usain Bolt (FS in 100 finals)
Day 3: Dayron Robles (DQ after winning 110H)

Isi is a strong contender for being on the cover as she is very popular in Asia. Can she break the curse?

Quote from Garry Hill (I think this is his way of saying Isi on on the cover of the program)

if I'm a PV official tonite, I'm wearing full body armor for when the carbon fiber shrapnel goes a-flyin!

Haha some tweets:

#daegu2011 @J_Ennis escapes curse of the programme cover. Todays features isinbayeva who goes in pole vault final 2nite #worldcoverjinx

Phew - Jess Ennis swerves #Daegu2011 #covercurse - day 4 programme cover is russian pole vaulter Yelena Isinbaeva

Ennis must have breathed a sigh of relief. Sorry, Yelena. #covercurse? http://twitpic.com/6dc1pj

I know it's all superstitious nonsense and just a co-incidence but am happy that Jess isn't on the programme cover. #daegu2011 #covercurse

glad Jess Ennis has avoided #daegu2011 #covercurse

Unlucky, Isinbayeva... #covercurse #daegu2011 http://yfrog.com/j286bsj

Goooooood morning! Who else is awake? My alarm managed to completely freak out the baby, so Eddie may be watching part of the meet with us!

Greetings, Eddie :)
Hope it will be as entertaining as the mens final yesterday. Hope that I can find a feed that shows a lot of jumps. Watching a Eurosport feed right now.

IAAF website says the temperature has cooled since morning and there is a bit of a breeze.

And we're off! Clearances at 4.30 for Ptacnikova and Kiriakopoulou, the latter who has been sick/injured the past few days.

Gadschiew over as well. Everyone else passed 4.30, so the bar now goes up to 4.45.

Just got back from another long day. Pretty exhausted but it's vault time! :)

Thanks for the feed! It's working pretty good in Australia for all the other Aussies reading!
Hard work is wasted energy if you don't work wisely!
