Stupid-stupid decision by the officials to make 13 jump at one more height just to eliminate 1.
And too bad the athletes themselves weren't more in touch (like the men in Rome '87, when Patrik Sjöberg--as i recall--led a "boycott" at jumping higher when it wasn't needed). There were, i think, 8 who had perfect records through 1.91. They simply should have all passed at 1.93, since they couldn't fail to advance basedon the numbers at that point.
You have no idea how badly we wanted to blurt that out over the microphone, but we thought better of it.
