Logan Cunningham (2014 graduate) will be competing in the Pole Vault on Saturday (airing on NBC Sports) and has a good chance of making the team. He's already made the Olympic Standard, so if he places top 3 he automatically goes.

The amount and quality of competitors that these athletes have to deal with is unreal. Just like trying to get a job nowadays. 1000s of competitors and you have to be the best on that day and at that moment.

Yes, well, online on NBC sports livestream. It was on TV (replay, probably edited) later. I didn't catch it. I wasn't home.

I clicked on the link to the championship game but couldn't get sound to work. Maybe done intentionally? :-)

Starting July 10th, former Bobcat pole vaulter, Anika Newell (2015), will compete for a spot on the Canadian Olympic team.

Will check around and see if any of theirs will make it on some form of US transmission.

Newell made the Canadian team today. It was kind of a no brainer when there were only 3 left after a certain height and she was one of them.

I didn't see any of it but I caught a tweet about the 3 being left and another tweet of her making it.
