Dial Athletics Summer Vault - Whitt 5.72i

I thought I posted this already, but I guess I only tweeted about it. This was indoors at ORU.


Dial Athletics Summer Vault
6-2-12
Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Ok.

Pole Vault Results – Open Division

1. Jack Whitt 5.72
2. Casey Bowen 5.27
3. Alex Bishop 4.97
4. Jake Huddleson 4.82
5. Nick Meyer 4.82
6. Dillon Lookout 4.67
7. Seth Lewandowski 4.37
8. Garrett Abney 4.22




That makes Jack the fifth American and second collegiate athlete to hit the OG A standard. Could we see two college athletes make the team?

Thoughts on multiple industrial fans creating an indoor tailwind?

Haha, or the the rollout runway on top of thier exsisting, or the poles taped together as a measuring device at 3:15.

But I'm sure they went through all the steps to make sure it will count under USATF and IAAF guidelines. Good jumps :yes:

I really doubt the fans were making a difference in terms of tailwind. There's no rollout on the runway, it's cement with Mondo on top. They had it all surveyed and such when it was installed, it's a legit facility.

I'm prettttttyyyy prettttyyyy prettyyy sure 5-6 industrial sized fans lining the runway makes quite a difference. Using the same pole here as in a ripper tailwind at NCAA's with the meet on the line and adrenaline rolling hard. The only difference is this tailwind never changes directions or strength.

Lots of humidity that day, had to keep the runway dry and the building cooled down. : :D ;)

I assume they put down the roll out so they could run on the long jump pit in the back ground which is understandable but...It is mondo, but mondo on mondo.
