re: 4 roommates. 4 world junior medalists. 3 world junior champions. 2 world junior record
It took my whole Parish until the '80s to send off one world-class athlete.

This group of four roommates has more talent, work ethic, etc. than whole states.

Because I know nothing about pole vault. What makes Mondo so good?? Obvi he jumps higher than everyone, but why?? Stronger? better technique? what is it?

1. DNA - both his parents were world class athletes and Olympians. Both mom and dad coach and support Mondo’s dreams.
2. Early training - Mondo has been pole-vaulting since he could walk. They have a PV pit in their backyard as Mondo could train and work on his skill & technique 7 days a week. He shattered WR’s at every age group since he was 5 yrs old.
3. Passion - from an early age, he was surrounded by world class athletes and he always wanted to be the best in the world.
4. All the aforementioned help make him a prodigy

I was a little confused at first because i though the two in the middle were women at first glance and was wondering when LSU let guys and girls room together.

Don't worry, Coach Shaver will find a way for LSU to finish 4th at the SEC outdoor meet. Well behind the top 2 teams.
