New Balance Indoor Grand Prix

Unread postby superpipe » Sun Jan 27, 2013 12:04 pm

Does anyone know a list of confirmed vaulters competing in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston on Saturday, Feb. 2nd, 2013? It's so annoying they never post lists of currently confirmed athletes. I would think you'd get much better ticket sales than keeping it "unknown" until comp day.

Anyway, I see mens PV is on the schedule this year. Really want to get some idea of what pros are competing. Jenn Suhr is on the list and I'm pretty sure womens PV has a good athlete list, but I havent' found anything more than Jenn listed as going. Please post in here if you know of other confirmed vaulters, including men.
