Way to go Brad! Thanks to steve chappell and becca for keeping those of us who couldn't make it to Reno in the loop.

Looks like he was blowing through at 5.91 with the standards at 80...anyone know the pole/grip?

Very exciting way to open up an olympic year! Anyone know when Brad's next meets are?

Great jump! Can't wait for brad back on the boards at Jockgrim, that real fast runway only means bigger poles!

Talked to Brad, he was on an 18 step run, 5.20 12.4 pole, ~58'5 mid. His indoor season will be New Mexico on Friday, Donetsk, USATFs, and he didn't say it but obviously worlds too.

Looked like about a 5.10 grip on the video.
