Bragg was one of 12 vaulters that cleared 5.32 (17-5.50) to advance to the final in Eugene. After passing on the first height, Bragg cleared 5.02 and then 5.17 on his second attempt at each. He easily made it over 5.27 on his first try and then cleared 5.32 on his final attempt to capture his first trip to the Championships. The pole vault in Eugene is set to be contested on June 11.
