Arkansas vaulter Lexi Weeks out of competition in Rio



Sad news from KARK. Razorback pole vaulter Lexi Weeks of Cabot is out of the Olympics competition in Rio. (4.55 meters is a shade under 15 feet. She cleared 4.7 meters at the Olympic trials.)

She was a particular favorite of ours as a member of last year’s Arkansas Times Academic All-Star Team.

She’s only 19. There’s a lot of vaulting ahead.

PS: But two other Razorback vaulters are still in the running for gold.
