Let me guess. The dissenters were probably the top 5 or 6 vaulters.

If it can be effed up, USATF will eff it up. They are the most inept sports body in history.

Right now 50% chance of rain and high of 66. Probably won't be a ton better than today, but hopefully no downpours.

I've gotta go a little with darkhorse Jordan Scott since he won NCAA at 5.70m in the pouring rain here and has jumped well lately.

I thought you might be here and that it would be fun for everyone to recognize your special day in the stands. Sorry we're gonna miss you.
