Nicole Forrester out at the opening height of 1.85m - must be some inane screaming from a crazy Canuck in the crowds that put her off!
All the rest safely over 1.85m...
Vlasic now the sole leader with her first-time clearance at 1.97m. Acuff, Green, Aitova, Friedrich, Palamar all out already.
Bar moves up to 2.00m - Savchenko, Slesarenko and Vlasic the only ones left in. Vlasic fails on first attempt, as does the Russian duo. Same applies for all of their second attempts - looks like today won't be the day for a PB, let alone a WR.
