ELLENSBURG, Wash. - A college track-and-field athlete from Washington state was forced to compete with borrowed poles after an airline allegedly lost her pole vault equipment.
Kati Davis told KOMO-TV ( http://is.gd/tuzNdg) that she paid a $200 oversize baggage fee at Sea-Tac Airport when she flew to Colorado last week for the NCAA Division II track and field championships. The Central Washington University athlete says the airline lost her poles and didn't return them until the day of the competition.
Her coach drove from Pueblo, Colo., to the Denver airport to get them but got stuck in traffic. Davis had to compete without her coach or her poles.
Davis performed with disappointing results. She had earned all-America honors in the indoor season and last year's outdoor season.
The airline refunded her $200.
