Olympics pole vault qualifying live stream info: How to watch Sam Kendricks tonight at Rio

Published 7:03 am Saturday, August 13, 2016

Jump Sam Jump time has finally arrived, and Sam Kendricks will pole vault tonight in the Olympics qualifying round.

The pole vault qualifying is tonight at 6:30 p.m. central time and you can get it all here via live stream. (You will need a cable subscription to get more than the first 30 minutes.)

The pole vault finals are Monday evening at 6:30 and Kendricks is expected to compete for a medal. First, though, he must qualify for the finals in tonight’s event.

Kendricks, a 2011 graduate of Oxford High, has been one of the top vaulters in the world in recent years and is favored to contend for a spot on the podium. The Associated Press projected him to finish third while bookmakers across the pond have him favored to take home silver.

If Kendricks can bring home a medal, he will be the first athlete from Oxford High to do so as he has already made history by being the first Charger alum to become an Olympic athlete.
