Not much room to spare there! Five over the bar now.

Mesnil gives it his best shot, but crashes down on the bar. Nowhere near enough pole speed.

Bit of a crosswind perhaps? It looks a little swirly, but it's not very strong.

If Renaud falters, a German sweep is in the works.

Bychkov so close! He had the height, just barely brushed it. He's definitely got some PRs in his future, just not today.

Michalski goes out as well. Close but brushed it off on the way up.

PR for Kudlicka if he makes it.


Two Olympics in a row with no medals for USA men's pole vault. Has that ever happened before?
