So this means he isnt really making a run at the olympics? or he just doesnt have a torn acl?

Nice prank.....I did have my suspicions initially, but I fell as hard as anyone else. I really thought Jacob Davis was going to come back and turn some heads, but I later found that that was impossible considering he weighs about 270 now. He really is the only vaulter that fit the bill: Married, 2 kids, wife would not support his vaulting etc etc.. Oh well, I guess it was fun while it lasted. I would like to know who the elites are that were nervous about the comeback kid though. I bet they thought it was Jacob. After all, the guy jumped 5.90 not even wanting to vault. Nicely done Ash and Dev.

Just change the date and we are good to go for 2012!

Below is the video to the true story of current NCAA record holder Lawrence Johnson. He will be documenting his own come back through his YouTube channel and a blog on his website.
