Huskies' Jax Thoirs added to British team for European Under 23 Championships in Finland...

University of Washington rising sophomore Jax Thoirs (left/photo courtesy University of Washington) was one of fifteen athletes added by British Athletics to its squad for the European Under-23 Championships in Tampere, Finland on July 11-14.

Thoirs, a native of Glasgow, Scotland, was added based on his clearance of 18-0 1/2 (5.50m) at last week's Somero Pole Vault Carnival in Somero, Finland, where he became the fifth vaulter in University of Washington history to clear 18 feet, joining the likes of Scott Roth, Brad Walker, Garth Willard, and Steve Oravetz on that elite list.

Thoirs is currently tied for eighth on the current European under-23 list in the pole vault.
