Husband and coach Rick Suhr said Jenn vs Isi was like "Ali-Frazier" and added, "Without them, is it really even the Olympic final?"
Rick Suhr: "If you're going to have an Olympic final, you're going to want Jenn in there and you're going to want Yelena Isinbayeva in there. It's the Ali-Frazier. Without them, is it really even the Olympic final? They're the greatest pole vaulters who have ever touched a pole. The spectators and the world deserve to see the best people jump. ... Track is dying. The only way you are ever going to get fans out watching track and field again is to put the absolute best out there."
Rick Suhr argues that the Trials "just allows our best athletes to trip up." We love the Trials and so do all the fans and most of the athletes. But if you're the best in the World in your event, then of course you rather a free pass to the Olympics.
