Brad Walker finishes third at London GP...

Mountlake Terrace resident Brad Walker tied for third with Germany's Alexander Straub at 18-9 1/4 (5.72m) in Saturday's Aviva London Grand Prix meet.

Russia's reigning world indoor champion Yevgeniy Lukyanenko won the event at 19-7, with Australia's Steve Hooker second, also at the same height.

This was the first time that two men had jumped 19-7 in the same competition.

Afterwards, Walker told Matthew Brown of the IAAF, “I had some good jumps but didn’t quite get it together today. It’s going to take a 6 meter (19-8 1/4) jump to win the Olympics.”
