Charles Austin wasn’t worried when he hit the bar on his first two attempts at a Masters world record.

“I set the American record on my last jump,” Austin recalled. “I won the Olympics on my last jump. I won the World Championships on my last jump. So pressure doesn’t bother me. It causes me to focus a little bit more. Once I dial it in, it’s no problem.”

Maybe Austin just wanted to add more drama to the event.
