Don Isett raises M70 world indoor vault record 4 times in one meet
Don Isett reports he bettered the listed M70 world indoor vault record four times Jan. 7 at the Texas Pole Vault Roundup at Joshua High School, south of Fort Worth. After clearing 3.24 (10-7 1/2) to beat his good friend Terry Cannon’s 3.23 record, he went on to go 3.27 (10-8 3/4), 3.33 (10-11) and finally 3.35 meters (10-11 3/4), he reports. The meet was USATF-sanctioned and three certified judges were present.В “They are submitting the record request for an indoor world record,” Don writes. (Update:В Results are now posted as a PDF here.) His 3.35 is equivalent to an open mark (age 20-30) of 6.21 (20-4 1/2). That’s Bubka-esque! Don’t know if Don is going to Finland for indoor worlds, but just FYI: Deadline for registering is Feb. 12, says the USATF site.
