    Sasha Zhoya Another 16 YO Prodigy
    #1
    Managed to have a quick conversation with him. In short he is 16.

    Pole Vaults 5.32 (holds the 14yo age record at 4.92)
    60m hurdles 7.48 age record 16yo

    Has another age record in the 110 hurdles

    Low 21 for 200m
    10.55 100m as a 15 YO

    Based on the pole he was on a 4.90 15 and that he was only on 16 steps I could see him jumping 5.50-5.60 before he turns 17. Similiar to Mondo and Karalis. But it seems he is faster and taller than both of them.



    Undecided whether he will compete for Austrailya or France. Trains with Alex Parnov

    As we have seen in many cases, that may be irrelevant in what he chooses.

    His 60m hurdle race with the 7.48 has become a bit of a meme on instagram. He beats the other guys by 10meters. Looks like a man racing against children.
