Have You Seen 90-Year-Old Pole Vaulter William Bell in Action?
When most adults reach the twilight of their lifetimes, they tend to slow down and cast athletic activities aside. Ninety-year-old William Bell is not one of those people.
Bell (who is the father of 1984 Olympian pole vaulter Earl Bell) is a world-record pole vaulter himself and is still shattering records to this day. William currently holds the record for vaults in the 75-79’s/80-84’s/85-90’s age groups.
In the below video, Bell attempts a world-record vault of seven feet and two inches at the age of 90.
William’s world record vault shattered the previous record by almost a foot.
