Lightfoot clears 18 10 3/4, same as second place finisher, gets third on misses, but is on team to represent US at world championships in Doha Qatar.

That's an amazing accomplishment for a guy who just completed his freshman year. He improved his personal best by two inches with a berth on Team USA on the line!
