  • 10-year-old raises Bantam record in HJ

    Sean Lee, the 10-year-old son of masters high jumper Ron Lee, broke the oldest USATF Bantam record on the books recently by clearing 1.56. Last Sunday, Sean went higher -- 1.57.

    Sean flops like his old man -- approaching from the left.

    Details here:

    Question: The listed Bantam record-holder is David Mosley.

    Anyone know what happened to David?

    As an aside the global HJ record for a 10 year old is
    1.63m 5- 4 1/4 John Thornell AUS 22 Apr 85 17 Mar 96

    Thornell went on to be a LJ finalist at a World Youth Champs, 2 World Juniors (including a bronze) and a Commonwealth Games (and is still an active LJer).

    He LJed 7.69m as a 16 yo, 7.99m as a 19 yo and has a current PR of 8.08m... best HJ result I can find from him is 2.12 in 2002...

    Always cool to see one of the young phenoms actually stick around...
