This past weekend was filled with great performances. So great that it was difficult for us to dwindle it down to just the top 5 star performances. At the end of the day we came to together to get the best performances for the weekend.
* Sandi Morris (USA/NIKE)- There was lots of talent on display at the Pole Vault Summit. The Olympic Silver Medalist opened the season with a very impressive 4.90M that is a World leading mark. We can hardly wait to see what more she has in store for 2018.
** Omar McLeod(Jamaica/NIKE)- The King of Men’s hurdling opened the season sending a message to the rest of the world this past weekend. The message was the same showing the he can’t be beaten in the event. He opened with a world leading time of 7.53 at the Kentucky Invitational.
*** Bralon Taplin (Grenada)- The Grenadian opened the season with a astonishing 45.48 in the 400 meters at the Ted Nelson Invitational. He has definitely set the bar of what other competitors will need to follow with that World leading time.
***** Mondo Duplantis (Sweden/High School)- The High School Phenom did not disappoint at the Pole Vault Summit in Reno, Nevada. He broke his own World Junior Indoor U20 record with a mark of 5.83m. We are looking forward to seeing where the rising star will rank throughout the season amongst the pros.
***** Trey Culver (Texas Tech)- We have been buying stock into Trey Culver all off season, and the dividends are just getting started. The talented Senior put on a show in the New Indoor facility at Texas Tech University. His mark of 2.33M/7-7.75 was a School Record, NCAA Leading mark, World leading mark, and ranks #4 on the NCAA All Time list. The great part is that he is just getting started.
