Completely forgot about Andrew. I actually think he has a great shot at being the best American ever. He has more upside than anyone I've seen in a long time.

Re: USA List.. 6M-4.80M

I see no one other than Whitt with the potential to jump 6m+. He will have to progress faster than he has in college though. Off the top of my head, I think every vaulter that has cleared 6m more than once had a PR higher than 5.80 at age 23 except for Hartwig (most were probably 5.90+ at 23). Old g...

Re: Otto - 6.01 in aachen Germany

from a German on the TFN board: the organizers of the meet specifically stated (prior to the meet) that they built the runway in accordance with the DLV so that the marks would officially be recognized.

Re: Aug 25, Leverkusen - Danny Ecker Retires

I really think he could've been the WR holder if he wasn't derailed with injuries. Right after he jumped 6m and had surgery, he was never the same.

Re: top SEC vault school

I know of an 18'+ high schooler that got 80% and after winning the NCAA title had his scholarship cut.

Nothing is a given. If you need money, there's plenty of better, more stable sources out there for college than athletic scholarships. To base everything on just that is, IMO, foolish.

Re: top SEC vault school

To add to the boss's comments, 17' won't even guarantee an offer. High school performance isn't that reliable of indicator of collegiate performance. There's been many, many 16 & 17 high schoolers that never PR'd once in college. The good vault programs will judge you on potential. If you jump 1...

Re: The turnover at Oklahoma continues...

Maybe they aren't asking for more because no one wants to coach at Oklahoma, and they are dealing with a much smaller population base and limited job opportunities than the other school which I think was in a major metropolitan area. Norman is a suburb of OKC and the metro area has a pop of like 1....

My french is rusty but I think Inocencio told Lavillenie that if he didn't clear, he was riding home with Lukyanenko.
