Despite the bone-chilling 2-degree temperature outside, accompanied by a brisk 10-mile-per-hour wind or even stronger gusts, the athletes faced the elements with resilience. Chase McFadden took on the challenge, participating in the vaulting event with the college guys on Friday. The following day saw a lineup of impressive athletes, including Tucker, Bennett, Aspen, Kylie, and Sadie, all taking to the vault.
Inside the building, a stark contrast awaited, as the warmth enveloped participants and spectators alike. The temperature indoors was so pleasant that a jacket became unnecessary, providing a welcome reprieve from the harsh outdoor conditions. The announcer proudly declared the event as the largest indoor meet in the United States, underscoring the significance and magnitude of the gathering.
