¶NCAA Outstanding Men's High Jump (Drouin 2.35; 7 over 2.26)

Six men over at 2.26m currently. Drouin looks flawless. Kynard looking pretty good too.

Now, seven athletes over 7-5 (2.26m). I'm wondering if that's a record for depth or close to it.

Wow...figures. For some reason the live feed is gone right when this competition really heats up. Two now over 2.29m. Guess will have to wait til ESPN3 starts in 25 minutes.

Drouin over at 7'8.5" (2.35m)!!!!!!! Kynard and Jackson have one attempt left. Hollis Conway's record could be assaulted today.

Kynard passed several times and went out with a valiant effort at a new CR 2.38m. Drouin has his first miss of the competition at 2.38m. Two left.

Drouin wins at 2.35 (7'8.5")!! He has so much potential. Second is Marcus Jackson from MSST, who recorded several PB's and finished at 2.29 (7'6"). Kynard who didn't look bad got into the passing gamble and ended up third at 2.29m. This competition has to be close to a record for depth at the indoor champs. Seven guys over 2.26m (7'5")!

Drouin's 2.35 is equalling Mark Boswell's Canadian outdoor record.

I think Kynard should get back to clearing bars. Get your self over 2.32 and get back to having 3 attempts. In the Olympics it was borderline annoying to watch him just passing and looking gradually more and more hopeless.

He was pretty close at 2.38 as well (and no misses until that height).

Great to see an event live up to it's expectations. Excellent depth and top end.

Just wish ncaa would recognize that fans would enjoy camera dedicated to each field event and let viewers select which event they want to watch rather than getting us all excited to view some of the event and then have to rely on highlights. HJ's like this make field events exciting to watch LIVE but watching them after its over has very little impact.

This is something usatf should also allow at its outdoor championships/Olympic Trials to enhance field event coverage for those who can't make it to the meets.

The Razorback video feed seemed to have a mechanism for splitting from one view to four views. Of course, they did not have four cameras to select from (although you might have been able to pick up a different sport).
