We said that Nico Weiler of Harvard was in a class by himself in the pole vault. Here’s the evidence: His nearest competitors all missed 4.80 meters and were out of the competition. Weiler opened at 5.20!

He’d wind up clearing 5.38 meters (17-7 3/4), thus breaking not only his own meet record, but the all-time all-event standard of 17-7 1/4 (David Slovenski of Princeton in 2011).

In the 400-meter dash, two runners who were away trying to make it to the London Olympics are back and they posted the top times in the heats. Cornell junior Bruno Hortelano-Roig, who was after a spot on Team Spain, ran 48.05 while Princeton senior Austin Hollimon, who chased the dream in the 400m hurdles, circled the track twice in 48.19. Should prove a great final!

The pole vault results:

1. Nico Weiler, Harvard — 5.38m (17-7 3/4)
2. David Kim, Cornell — 4.70m (15-5)
2. Brett Gilson, Dartmouth — 4.70m (15-5)
4. Brendan Sullivan, Yale — J4.70m (15-5)
5. Paul Chandler, Yale — 4.60m (15-1)
5. Josh Cyphers, Dartmouth — 4.60m (15-1)
