Hoosier State Relays

Congratulations to Emily Gresley (daughter of Sevens member Jeff Gresley) for qualifying in the Pole Vault for the Hoosier State Relays indoor Track and Field Finals coming up next weekend.

This might be a good time to point out the Olympic Committee's extremely odd ruling to disallow Women's Ski Jumping. The IOC says there are not enough women competing at a high level of the sport and allowing it would just "water down" the value of medals won.

The Women's Marathon was introduced into the Olympics in 1984. Women's pole vaulting was introduced into the Olympics at Sydney in 2000 -- which is harder, the pole vault, or falling off a hill?
