Even though Jordan Scott has "only" cleared 5.40 this season, he looks great and has had some unlucky bounces of the bar. Look for him to really step it up in the next few months as he tries to add more speed to his already incredible technique.

He looked great last season when he was on! I hope he knows that a lot of young (and old) vaulters are pulling for him.
Here's hoping that all our other up and coming vaulters can peak for the olympic year and bring back some medals. Whitt, Hollis, Scott, and Scott all have potential to jump world caliber heights if things line up for them. Miles has old-guy-power, so anything is possible. Nothing would make me happier than to see him get a medal!
Don't count Colwick out just yet. Although he didn't have the best year (height wise) last year he is poised to get some BIG bars this season. He's made some huge improvements in his takeoff and swing, and I would not be surprised if he posted a 5.90m or better before the medals are handed out in London.
I had heard that Colwick was training at UW with Pat Licari, which is exciting. Looking forward to seeing him reach his potential. We all know that changes in technique tend to take a while to equate to big bars.
