In Pole Vaulting at the Keefer VS Brabham meet last night! I was soooo excited for him! Below are the photos of him clearing the pole...the ones I got anyway!!!
This first one was of him clearing it at 6 feet. That is high That is like jumping or the top of a tall man's head! LOL...Oh...and for reference...the POLE is at 6 feet...do you see how much clearance he has between him and the pole????
This next one is at 7 foot. I didn't get the 6.5 photo....but that's ok. Tamon had come to me and said..."I hope I get 2nd place again." **He has gotten 2nd consistantly at all of his track meets thus far**. I just looked at him...stunned. He is shooting for 2nd???!! Um...no.
I told him..."Why not go for first, Tamon. You are REALLY good, son. If you get 2nd that is great...but go for first, kid"
He smiled, and said..."Thanks, Mom. I will." And off he went to jump the 7 foot pole. Here are the results. =) Happy Mom...right??? WELLLLLLLLLL....
This last one is at SEVEN AND A HALF FEET!!!! Look at that form and his grace! I love this! As they say in basketball..."Nothin' but net". This was a gorgeous jump!
Well, he has cleared 8 foot before, but tonight, he was exhausted. He had just placed 3rd in discus throw, and ran a LOOOOOOOONG way to make it to jump in time. He was tired and just couldn't quite clear the 8 foot bar without knocking it off...so he won first with a 7.5 clear jump. I am Proud. =)
