It's about time

It's about time someone has brought some energy, knowledge, and fun to some nerd talk! Keep it up!

Great content!

Very insightful and educational for a sport that doesn’t get a whole lot of publicity. I would recommend this to anyone from an experienced vaulter to someone that just wants to get to know the event.
