This article, Kurtis the Conqueror, originally appeared on athletics.org.au – home of Athletics Australia.

Wednesday evening saw the busiest public transport hub in Switzerland transformed, as six men, including Australia’s Kurtis Marschall cleared 5.81m – a competitive feat which has occurred four times in men’s vaulting history.

Marschall thrived in one of the highest quality vaulting events in global history, clearing a personal best of 5.81m following two attempts, his second attempt proved successful again at 5.86m, good for third overall, behind Shawn Barber (CAN, 5.86m) and Timur Morgunov (ANA, 5.91m).
