Paul Babits raises own M50 world indoor vault record to 15-7
Paul Babits raised his own M50 world indoor vault record last month, I’ve just learned. He cleared 4.75 meters (15-7) at the Brenda Lee Open at Fort Wayne, Indiana, according to his website. The listed indoor WR is Paul’s 4.73 (15-6 1/4) from 2011. At the same meet, Olympic champ Jenn Suhr jumped a then-world-leading 4.84 (15-10 1/2). Not to be overlooked: Paul’s wife, Brenda, cleared 2.51 (8-2 3/4) as a W50. Bud and Nadine, you have some competition! Congrats to all.
