Suspended Pole Vault

Fed rules

Last night, one of the pole vaulters had planned to pass the first three heights.
We got through two heights in the pole vault when the rains came and we suspended competition until Saturday. If he still plans to pass the next height, do we give him 2 minutes of runway time since he technically passed three consecutive heights, even though he should have plenty of time to re-warmup on Saturday?

I normally offer the time when I'm getting near the end of a height so they can get around. I'm half tempted to not make such an offer this time. However, I will grant the runway time if he asks for it.

I don't think anyone I know would grant this. I know I would not. Resuming competition on the same day is far different than resuming competition on the following day.
A new day.. unless the event is being restarted from the beginning, this vaulter vaulter would be starting at the second height of the event.

He/she does not need any special warm-up for that.
