Omaha – American pole vaulters Sam Kendricks and Sandi Morris have a major reason to be proud. They were the winners of the Capitol District Vault in Omaha, Nebraska.
Fresh off his 2019 USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships win in Des Moines, Iowa, where he smashed the American record, Kendricks reigned supreme in the men’s pole vault competition at the inaugural Capitol District Vault in Omaha, Nebraska.
Kendricks won with a clearance of 5.90 meters and Chris Nilsen finished in second place with 5.90 meters on countback. Both of these pole vaulters made history in being able to be the first to clear the bar at 19 feet in the state of Nebraska.
Matthew Ludwig came in third place with 5.60 meters and Tray Oates finished in fourth place with a clearance of 5.60 meters, on countback.
