Walker wins U.S. pole vault title at trials

EUGENE, Ore. — Brad Walker won his fourth U.S. pole vault title, clearing 18 feet, 7 1/4 inches at the Olympic track trials Thursday night for a spot on the U.S. team for the London Games.

Jeremy Scott was second at 18-4 1/4, and Scott Roth third at the same height, but Roth does not have the Olympic “A standard this season of 18-9 1/4 required to compete in the Olympics.

The third spot on the team went to fourth-place finisher Derek Miles, who finished fourth at the Beijing Games.
