I too am a little baffled by this. Barshim has hops in excess and is too often done in by errant limbs (not surprising given his weak/easily injured back). Bondarenko, though, doesn't seem as bouncy or fast as the other guys, but he continues to elevate the event. I don't know the high jump as well as I like but everything about him, especially his approach differs greatly from his opponents.

Barshim is much better than Bondarenko from a technical standpoint. Bondarenko really has no business killing so high with his form.
