Re: Did Australia pay $100,000 for vaulter to compete for Russia

The situation is probably very important to understand, but who wrote this tabloid-like title to the article. It makes it sound as if Australia purposely paid this athlete to compete for Russia against Australia's Hooker.

Re: Adult Michigander wishes to pole vault again

I'll add my welcome back. A smile always comes to me when I hear of another vaulter wanting to take it up again.

Were these runs 3L and 4L as is implied the way we use the word step, or were they 6L and 8L?
