Fabiana Murer of Brazil had about one week to enjoy her world leading mark set at the Milrose Games last week. Yelena Isinbayeva took the lead coming out of retirement at a meet in Russia. So what's the big deal? Besides the fact that the Brazilian is strong and sleek, my coach Kris Allison, met her and her coach at the South American Pole Vault Summit in Argentina in 2008. At that point she hadn't even made 15' (4.57m) but Kris told me that she would be huge, and of course she is. So keep an eye on this slick Brazilian, and others to come. Bubba
Here is a video of Fabiana breaking the Bazil record of 4.82m (15' 9 1/2")
Here she is beating Arkanas school teacher, April Steiner Bennett in Rio to get her first 15' vault.
Oh yeah - my training - grind away in the cold garage.
