In case you missed it, University of Washington alum and two time US Olympian Brad Walker (left/photo courtesy Mizuno), the American record holder in the pole vault, recently signed a deal to wear Mizuno in competition for the 2014 season, according to a tweet posted on his account.
Walker, the 2007 world outdoor champion and 2006 world indoor champion, also announced that he will compete for the New York Athletic Club, and will be represented by Karen Locke of Bay Area based Elite Athletes Network.
Walker was dropped by long time sponsor Nike after his fourth place finish at the world championships in Moscow when the company became upset because he taped his competition spikes.
According to sources, Walker's Mizuno deal is a multi-year agreement.
Walker is currently based in Phoenix, where he's training under coach Dan Pfaff at the World Athletics Center.
