      And a new best for 15 yo Vicki Parnov: 4.32m...she only needs another 6 cm between now and October to break the world-age best...actually, given the 16yo best is also 4.37, she has a fair while...

              Looks like you need some more Burgess info:

              Progression:
              1994 (15yo): 3.90
              1995: 5.25
              1996: 5.35 (won the WJ that year)
              1997: 5.51
              1998: 5.60 (3rd in WJ)
              1999: 5.50
              2000: 5.50
              2001: 5.71
              2002: 5.75
              2003: 5.70
              2004: 5.77
              2005: 6.00
              2006: 5.92

              In comparison here's the progression for his current Aussie rival Steven Hooker (d.o.b 16-7-2002)

              1999: 5.00
              2000: 5.20
              2001: 5.30
              2002: 5.35
              2003: 5.45
              2004: 5.65
              2005: 5.87
              2006: 5.91

              And Hooker's a versatile dude. These are other PBs of his that I could find:
              100m: 10.68w (10.6h)
              200m: 21.1h
              400m 48.6h
              LJ: 7.20m
              I'm sure I've also seen him running over the 110mH. He entered a decath a few years back but didn't finish (from memory)...

                Oh, a correction to my Parnov claim. The 17 yo best is now 4.40 - Valeriya Volik (Rus).

                    JOCKGRIM, Germany – Brad Walker vaulted into another stratosphere on Wednesday.

                    The University High School graduate became just the 12th pole vaulter in history to join the 6-meter club outdoors – clearing 19 feet, 8 1/4 inches to win an international vault-only meet.

                    Walker, who turned 25 a month ago, beat the last man to clear 6 meters, Australian Paul Burgess, who accomplished the feat 17 months ago in his home country.

                      so I ask again, is it a statistically valid jump (i.e., ATFS will NOT list it as an exhibition)? I certainly hope so, but there are many good marks still residing in the category (unless they've rethought the whole thing lately and realized that most indoor marks (which they ostensibly recognize as legit) are of the same ilk.

                        It's a vault-only meet, but that doesn't mean it's an exhibition competition. Did someone/somewhere say that it was an exhibiton comp?

                          No. The Aussie press was all over the fact that Vicky Parnov broke the U20 and U18 Aussie records in that same meet.

                            So IS there any such thing as an 'exhibition' any more or has it gone the way of the dodo?

                              I'd be willing to bet if someone in the US had a big beach/street vault and didn't get a USATF sanction, if any BIG marks were set, somebody would get mad and call it exhibition.

                              Toby Stevenson had a truly exhibition meet in a hockey rink in his hometown earlier this year. It sounded pretty cool. At the end they tried to kick the ceiling, and Hartwig managed to dig both of his heels in.
