Altendorf shares video of world record M60 vault
John Altendorf, writing on Becca Gillespy’s message board, has given further details on his M60 world indoor record in the vault last weekend in Seattle: “This was the first time I attended the UW Open. . . . Most masters meets are very sparsely attended so to have such a large crowd in a confined area was a new experience. And since my jumping went well, all this fit together to make a great day. This is the only meet where all the heights I made (4) were on the first attempt until I went out trying 4.00m. If anyone wants to see the 3.96 jump you can access it with this link.”
If you look closely at the end of the video you will recognize a smiling face in an orange T-shirt. She was there helping me for all my jumps. Thanks to my friend and fellow masters vaulter Louis Baucom for video taping my jumps. Jump details: 8 lefts from 91’6″, 4.15m 165 lb 17.6 flex Pacer FX gripping 12′ 10. (Just for the record, the first jump at the record was at 3.92m not 3.93m.)
Marvelous jump, John! Just amazing. Great form, great finish.
Love that helmet, too!
