You are absolutely correct ramborich - but I thought Rick was asking for some comments about what folk saw. I may be wrong but that is what I thought I saw - as briefly as I could put it. She appears to be a very good runner - problem is that if she does not add a good vertical component at take off her speed takes her flat - imho.

yeah i have to agree that that pole series looks too soft. So that when you are flat and under they just kinda flip you up so you don't go very deep.

Interesting that you think I am stupid enough to base MY comment on one jump
Sorry you took offense to that. I was trying to say you probably know better since it seems like you know her but what I said was just based off the jump that was posted. I thought I made it perfectly clear I was only basing off the one jump. I was not trying to contradict you but was simple saying for that jump she needed to be down a pole or down in grip.

It is hard to do things correctly when coming up short. Based on the jump I saw that is what happened.

I don't like that your trying to argue with me instead of just commenting on the technique and trying to help the athlete, especially since I am not disagreeing with you.


Here are her serious of jumps, 3 of which the pole gets past vertical, she clearly goes up a pole for the last jump and comes up a little short.
