2017 Athleissima Diary: Mariya Lasitskane soars over 2.06 meters!


Lausanne 2017 will be remembered for many track and field events. At the very end of the evening, no one was leaving, after the Swiss 4x100 meters set a national record, only the high jump and pole vault were being conducted.

On one end, three vaulters were competing for the win: Kendricks, Lavillenie, Wojciewski were battling. On the other end of the track, Mariya Lasitskane was in her zen place. Lasitskane was made to high jump. When she begins her run, she clicks her on switch and runs to the bar, then, wills herself over the bar. The 2.06 meter clearance was amazingly precise and dominating. This was not Mariya's 14th straight win, as I had noted earlier, it was her 18th consecutive win, as EME News noted.

Her 2.10 meter attempts were good attempts. From trying, Lasitskane will learn what to do, and the 2.10m will be like Climbing Mount Everest. Or, like breaking a four minute mile.

How do we put limits on ourselves. Mariya Lasistskane does not see limits like other humans do, or she would not have cleared 2.06 meters.
