USATF Men - Kendricks 5.90

Unread postby rainbowgirl28 » Sat Mar 12, 2016 12:49 am

Sam Kendricks and Mike Arnold were already our World team, as they were the only ones with the standard 5.77 (had to be hit by last week). Kendricks looked great over a new PR 5.90!

Congratulations to Sam Kendricks on his 5.90!

This is a great PR going into World Indoors next week!

I wonder what type of pole he was on, and what his grip was? (brand, model, length, flex)

Sorry, I didn't even think to ask. He wanted to go up a pole on the last jump and his dad had him drop his grip a bit on the same pole, worked out well! If I see him today I'll ask. #terriblereporter
