Osaka High Jump Predictions

IAAF Jumps Preview


Gold - Stefan Holm (Sweden). The reigning European Indoor champ is a heavy favorite.

Silver - Yaroslav Rybakov (Russia). Always does well in the biggest meets.

Bronze - Tomáš Janku (Czech Republic). Jumping fairly consistently and appears to be peaking.


Gold - Blanka Vlašic (Croatia). Bet the farm on this one.

Silver - Yelena Slesarenko (Russia). The Euro Cup champ has rarely lost to anyone but Vlašic, and beat her in Oslo.

Bronze - Kajsa Bergqvist (Sweden).
