    Sam is probably the most efficient and technically sound vaulter in history. He uses a 4.90 pole. For reference most vaulters use that size pole to clear anywhere from 16' to max 18' ..... sam...

    Well that is a wrap! No Berlin heroics but a silver to one of the most consistent vaulters in history aint bad!

    It does feel weird that Mondo didn't PR this year. However he did get a lot more...

    Interesting everyone thinks the mens pole vault will be 6 meters plus but no one is predicting the WR. If someone wins with a jump over 6 meters they are going to try the WR!

    My prediction go big...

    Meets like the WC need to be in a place where you can justify a vacation and is a destination spot. Forget the politics this needs to be more of a business. I have a masters in history and couldn’t...

    Id love 5.61-5.76-5.86-5.96-6.01-6.06-6.11 . That way we get a new meet record. Or a 5.62 start so we can get a new wr in the progression. Wishful thinking but ya never know!

    Mondo hasn't PRed outdoors yet this year. I'm nervous, what would the world be like in a year where Mondo doesn't PR? How hard is it to jump 20' anyway!!

    I dont see it on NBC gold but is there a feed anywhere for the mens pole vault qualifying round? In 2017 they had that. I remember Mondo making 5.70 as a scrawny 17 year old on his third attempt to...

    I did a little research project. Has there ever been three men over 6 meters in the same outdoor season? Yes, in 96,97,98,99 and lastly 2008. Never had 4 jumpers in the same year though. With...

    Probably taking some time off to find himself. He hasn’t been the same since the scandal before the olympics.

    I don’t buy the Morgunov injury thing. I think he is dark horsing. Im probably wrong...

    What is important to me is that in almost every meet he is attempting 6 meters. That is a good place to be in for someone that is not near his potential. Hopefully next year that means he is...

    Very happy to see Ajee wilson as the top pick for Doha. Hopefully a nice and permanent return to normalcy in this event.

    Respectfully I think he can:

    6.30 is 20'8" and his PR is 19'10 1/4" . He hasn't reached physical maturity, and is already jumping on monster poles. He has amazing competition to push him and has 8...

    Can’t we just ask Bubka? He has a twitter account. Mondo ran a 10.57. Im sure with dedicated training he could get into the 10.3s.

    I asked Coach K last year when Sam wasnt as consistent as in 2017. They tried a 5 meter pole and then beginning of this year a 4.95 pole. I think they were experimenting because last year was an off...

    That is the world record of push off! Most guys jumping 5.50 are on longer poles than Sam. For reference if Mondo got as much push off as Sam on his 5.20 pole he would be jumping close to 21’

    Last year and the beginning of this year Sam was experimenting with longer poles. 5meter and 4.95 poles. ( I asked his dad) In 2017 and recently he has gone back to his 4.90 poles and the results...

    Muscle cramps :( What a shame!

    Not the worst thing though. World Champs would have been really tough for his senior year of college and maybe even affect the Olympics.

    Going nuts of Kendricks!...

    Aw, that is a shame. Really nice guy. I meant him when he was a senior in high school when he was competing at the Arcadia invite. I coached there.

    Really we need Walsh, Fritsch, and Nilsen to win simply so they can represent three different eras of popular American hair styles.

    I think Mondo is the favorite. Lisek barely cleared 6.02 while Mondo had some serious height on it. Last week at 6.01 too. Though Lisek is on fire.
