A new US masters PV record of 4.04 m (M60) was set this past weekend at the OD USATF Masters championship @ GVSU in MI. Here's a video of his vault from the meet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcn0mjuwmPI - Thanks to Ken Stone for making & posting this video on YouTube for us all to enjoy!
In watching a 2009 video of him jump at 3-rivers festival, the announcer said he was an Olympic trials competitor/qualifier in 1976, ’80, & ‘84.
Gary has quite a long trail of PB's as a masters vaulter. There are others who have jumped higher at age 35 & 40 like Jeff Hartwig & Pat Manson, but it will be tough to beat Gary for longevity.
