Amazing: Blind Teen Top Pole-Vaulter In Texas

From ABC News: At just 15 years old, Charlotte Brown has learned to fly — with a pink pole vault. She’s not just the best pole vaulter Emory Rains High School, in Emory, Texas, has ever had, Charlotte is one of the best in the nation. She’s cleared 11 feet, 6 inches. And at the Texas state championships last week, the sophomore took eighth place — to a standing ovation. What’s most amazing, however, is that Charlotte is legally blind. She said her vision was like looking down the inside of little black straws. “I can’t really make up a blur even,” she told ABC News. “It just blends in for me.”
