This video is on the presser for the women’s Pole Vault, where Ekaterina Stefanidi, Sandi Morris, Yarislay Silva and Robyledis Peinado took gold, silver and a tie for bronze.
The pole vault was a fun event to watch. Sandi Morris was strong, but still is a bit tentative against Ekaterina Stefanidi, who is at the top of her game. Jenn Suhr, the 2012 champion, did not make the final, but Morris and Stefanidi showed that they are the class of the event.
Yarislay Silva looked okay but Robyledis Peinado showed that she will be someone to watch in the feature.
Watch the video, note the admiration and respect that Sandi and Ekaterina have for each other. They are the finest women vaulters in the world.
