and other guys jump are deceptive due to style has where easily gets upper body highest firts over bar due to flexibility and center of gravity is lower than suggests due to this . catch bar with legs and glutes on way over .

Inika McPhereson is a monster. They call her High Jump Queen for a reason. The articel below says she only tied the height differential, I think, but that hardly diminishes the jump. I alway marvel at the little guys who manage to go jump for jump with the spindly giants who dominate the game.
Bondarenko, Barshim, Ukhov, Druoin, and Dmitrik, all of the 2.40 guys. All that's missing is Kynard, and admittedly he hasn't quite reached that level (soon though!). Did Drouin compete at the Canadian champs?
It seems like they've all had time to rest up, so maybe...
