I voted today! Did you??? :idea:

It would be great if Shawn won this award! Please vote for him today! And every day for the next week!

Here's a few past winners that you may recognize - vaulters and decathletes ...

13th 1942 Cornelius Warmerdam (CA) Athletics
19th 1948 Robert B. Mathias (CA) Athletics
22nd 1951 Robert R. Richards (IL) Athletics
31st 1960 Rafer Johnson (CA) Athletics
34th 1963 John Pennel (LA) Athletics
40th 1969 William Toomey (CA) Athletics
47th 1976 Bruce Jenner (CA) Athletics

PLEASE VOTE !!! :yes:

A pole vaulter hasn't won this award since 1963. In fact, Cornelius Warmerdam is the only other pure vaulter that's won this. The others are all decathletes.

It's time for another great vaulter to win !!! :idea:

I would consider John Pennel primarily a vaulter, not a decathlete.

Yes, I thought that's what I thought I said. Just 2 pure pole vaulters on the list.

Pennel in 1963, and Warmerdam in 1942. :D

Please pardon my poor wording.
