Another medal ceremony. I love it when they kill the momentum. Otto ignoring the national anthem and retaping a pole.

Holzdeppe has two PRs under his belt. The last one was a squeaker. Can he dig deep and get another here?

Holzdeppe bails, looks like he might have gone up a pole or something. He needs something like that if he wants 5.97, that's a big boy bar :)

Holzdeppe has a quick swig of a beer to calm his nerves between jumps. (j/k, I dunno what it was).

Otto takes a solid attempt at 5.97 but it's a miss. Now Lavillenie has a chance to regain the lead.

Otto's gonna go clear. He looked better on first attempt than the others.

The pressure is building on Lavillenie. Same thing happened last year, he thought everything was going OK and got surprised.

He will have two attempts at 5.97. This is his first. He asks for a clap.

Another miss! Lavillenie is down to one attempt remaining!

Lavillenie does not look confident as he is getting yelled at by his coach.
