At least +Bruce Kidd and +Bill Crothers have come to New Orleans, Boston and Los Angeles and they are kicking butt. Six races and the University of Toronto duo haven't been seriously challenged.
|Bill Crothers and Harry Jerome|
+C.K. Yang grabs the record with a vault of 16-3¼. Yang, considered a good vaulter for a decathlete, has an affinity for the fiberglass pole. In a year he has gone from just another guy in the open vault to the world record holder. There may be more of this in his future as he has a close miss at 16-5. Crothers and Kidd are not the only Canadians having a bang up winter. In this meet +Dave Steen upsets Parry O'Brien by three inches with a PR of 61-5½.
