He won gold in Tokyo. 22 years old now and already considered the best ever.

1/4 of the way thru, when the pole is at maximum bend, I’m thinking he doesn’t have a chance. Just perfect form and execution. Actually looks like he gets an additional push off of the pole when pole is completely
vertical for that extra boost.

Mondo is a great little sh$&. LoL

I used to jump against his dad in the AAU.

Greg was a World Class Vaulter in the 80’s -early 90’s.

I have watched Mondo jump since he was 8yrs old.

The man is unreal…

Thanks for repping. NCAA finals on my bucket for next year.

Did you ever compete against Quinion or Vigneron?

I did not. They were older by about 10yrs.

Pole vault has been a French T& F “specialty” for many years.
