I don't see how he will ever get a PR again. Now we will be expecting vaults of this nature all the time. Good luck with all the pressure.

Yes, either a typo on the website or someone misread the paperwork.

I was wondering when someone would notice that. Three weeks ago when I first saw it, I wrote to Sandy Pashkin (USATF masters records person) noting the "9" instead of a "0". I commented that "As much as I would like to vault that high (over 16 feet), I don’t think that will ever happen." :(

Sandy wrote back "I guess I thought you were superman. Oh well, will correct."

Although it was done on my birthday and I measured it and was one of the signatures on the form, that was not my "0."
