Blanka jumps to new heights

Blanka Vlasic - New World High Jump Champion -hall

Blanka Vlasic is the new world championship in high jump, adding to her outdoor gold medal another one, the indoor one.

Croatia’s Blanka Vlasic has continued her streak of victories and has become the world champion in indoor high jump in Valencia.

Vlasic started the competition at the World Indoor Championships by jumping over 184 and 191 centimetres with flying colours. She missed on jumping 188 and 193 centimetres. Her competitors already had trouble at these heights and only Aitova, Savchenko and Beitia jumped over the 195 cm bar.

Blanka continued and jumped over 199 centimetres from the first try. Only five competitors were left to jump over 201 centimetres. The first to jump that height was Slesarenko, but Blanka followed. Vita Palamar also jumped successfully. So, Blanka had a medal coming to her, but she had to go for the gold.

All three failed to jump over 203 centimetres on their first try, but in the second try only Blanka succeeded. This height was too much for Slesarenko and Palamar and Vlasic, thus, won the gold medal.

Blanka tried going for the world indoor record at 209 centimetres, but failed in three tries.

    Dear Blogosphere,I'm a recent gaadurte and like almost all recent gaadurtes I've still got a few pesky student projects still hanging around my portfolio. This expandable book is one of them.Our brief for the project asked us to create a publication of our choice on a designer or artist of our choice. We had to research the individual, write the entire publication, and choose a client to design it for so that we knew our audience, how it would be distributed, etc Nothing out of the ordinary here.I read all of Mfcller-Brockmann's books and decided to write a synthesis of his beliefs and the style's beliefs on each of the major elements of graphic design. I also chose to make the publication bilingual, his were trilingual, to stay somewhat true to that publishing tradition.Most of my classmates chose major art museums and institutions to design their publication for. It became apparent to me during my research that Blanka would be a more appropriate organization for me to design my publication for. So I did.My personal portfolio site has only been used by me as an alternative or preview to my print portfolio in the clearly understood context of a recent gaadurte's portfolio with a mix of client and student work.I have not submitted any of my projects, including my Mfcller-Brockmann book, to any blogs. It was never meant to be viewed in the context that it has been.I don't regularly check my site's statistics so as soon as Blam contacted me and pointed out what was happening, I removed all references to Blanka in order to avoid misunderstandings within this new context.My apologies for the mixup! Now we can all keep calm and carry on.Love,Dylan
