In Berlin on Sunday, Washington alum Brad Walker (left/photo courtesy Michael Handelmann, DLV) cleared a best of 18-11 1/2 (5.78m) in the Berlin Fliegt meet held outside the Brandenburg Gate.

In the unique 4-team format, each vaulter received four total jumps, with points awarded for 'winning' a jump.
