You are obviously not familiar with the So Cal tradition that states all vaulters must vault nude (spikes are allowed) on the eve of their wedding.

I believe Borya Celentano has the nude WR with 5.10m (16-8 3/4). This was a nude jump just for fun, not prior to a wedding.
...that would hurt, but it would be worth it. That nude world record is mine!!! you just wait....

I've confirmed with Borya that 16' 6" was a regular occurrence and that he always beat Hinkin because Jason couldn't stop laughing enough to be serious when the bar got high. Bubba

I've also got video of three naked vaults the day before weddings, one with a marching band practicing in the background. Probably not a good tradition as 2 of the 3 are divorced. Bubba
