I dont know who this guy is, but wow…
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.
Mondo broke his world record again last night.
I was at the World Track & Field meet over the weekend…wearing my UH cap and our brand is surely recognized!! Got several comments re: UH track and football. BTW…saw Mondo’s jump…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.
They do very well.
The Lavillenie‘s have been great too. Father to sons
Younger brother is slowly progressing
