RunBlogRun opines: In August 2016, on a cold, wintry night in the Enghenaho Stadium, Brazil’s Thiago Braz Da Silva called on all his being and defeated the WR holder in the pole vault, in front of his home crowd. Braz has worked with Vitaly Petrov, the coach of Sergey Bubka, WC six time gold, and 35x world record holder fo the past seveal years.
Since then, Thiago Braz has not jumped up to his previous standards. He is going back to his original coach and using Mr. Petrov as an adviser. We wish Thiago much luck.
