Oh wow! Silva was really close at 4.80! She's going to be a real threat in London.

Now video of Murer's 4.85, she went wide right but made it clean.

So back to real time. Strutz XX at 4.90 so Murer wins for sure.

Murer has two more attempts.

LOL Strutz is not new to the sport, she's just new to jumping so high.

Can Fabiana become the third member of the 4.90 club? ... Not yet, but she's still got another shot today if she wants it.

Now Eurosport is finally live. Murer up for second attempt... not terribly close. She has one more attempt.

Evidently passing to 4.92 now... trying to tie Jenn for #2 all time. Strange... why not 4.93?

Murer passes to 4.92, that would be a world leader. She probably just wanted a little more time to rest between jumps.

Was thinking the same thing.

OK caught it on Eurosport. Very close attempt! Much better than her previous jumps at 4.90. She gets a big hug from Feofanova.

I am already looking forward to London. Believe the girls that wants to win needs to jump 5 meter.

Isi to Norwegian TV: I will be back! Next year is the Olympics, and I will jump high there. I felt good today, but did some technical mistakes (to stiff and to soft poles).

Reporter: "Will the Isi-period return?" YES (with a smile)

And Murer is out at 4.92 with a near make.


Great Show! some new stars on the scene to challenge for supremacy. I like it Isi still has big jumps in her. Jenn too.

Looking forward to next year.
