I may not be up to date, but I don't think German World Jav Champ del Zordo has the qualifier.
And I think German HJer Ariane Friedrich is also out. Before the Berlin WC 2009 a major US news magazine called her "Germany's only track and field star"! She did tie for silver (?) but it was the OTHER Germans who cleaned up!
Both de Zordo and Ariane Friedrich are on the team. de Zordo has As from last year and Friedrich is going with B (only HJer).
I am frankly disappointed that the Germans picked Friedrich. She hasn't shown condition, and last night Marie Laurence Jungfleisch (literally "young meat" ) cleared 1.95/6-4 3/4 in Lucerne. She wouldn't have threatened for a medal, but I seriously doubt that Friedrich will make a better showing than Jungfleisch would have.
