Ole Miss track & field alum Sam Kendricks has secured his third career Olympic qualifying berth, winning his 11th career national title in the pole vault to book passage to Paris at the third day of the 2024 U.S. Olympic Trials on Sunday.

Kendricks breezed through an arduous qualifying round on Friday, and was equally as efficient in Sunday’s final, maintaining a clean sheet all the way up to his eventual winning height of 5.92m/19-5 – which he hit on his second attempt for the victory. That mark breaks his own U.S. Olympic Trials record of 5.91m/19-04.75 set in 2016, and he was the lone competitor in the field to clear that height today.
