John Prader — the newest member of the 18′ Club

In a day of many PRs at the Cal Poly/ Invitational, one stood out above the rest.  Above Ashton Eaton’s Javelin PR (218-7.5), above Sharon Day’s long jump near-PR (20-1.5)…was John Prader’s 5.50 meter Pole Vault.  Lesser known for sure, but this kid’s speed, power, and technique (reminiscent of Scott Huffman without the roll) are just starting to pay off.  Take a look at this vault…with room to spare!  I’m proud to say I occasionally work out with this cat!


According to TFRRS, this ranks him #1 in Outdoor NCAA Track & Field.
