All American Pole Vault Athlete, Brandon Estrada, begins the next stage of his journey to Olympics
Total Sports Management, one of the world's leading track and field companies, has signed USC Pole Vault champion, Brandon Estrada, to its prestigious list of athletes of every discipline from around the globe.

Brandon Estrada, two time All American and Silver Medalist at XXI Central American and Caribbean Games, [also is son of actor Erik Estrada of “CHiPs” fame] has just completed a successful collegiate career as one of USC's best all-time vaulters now begins his Elite status career.

Total Sports Management has developed a client list that includes over 40 of the worlds top track and field athletes. The headquarters are located in Johnson City, TN, with satellite offices in Miami Beach, FL, and Kiev, Ukraine. Total Sports currently represents athletes from Antigua, Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Cayman Islands, Great Britain, Greece, Haiti, Ireland, Jamaica, Poland, Russia, Trinidad and Tobago, Ukraine, United States, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This list includes numerous Olympians, Olympic medalists, and national record holders.  Total Sports Management prides itself on recognizing new outstanding talent to join their client list, and Brandon Estrada is a natural fit. 
With highly impressive stats and dedication to his sport throughout his collegiate career, Brandon, a pre-law senior at USC, has moved forward competing as Elite twice thus far in which he not only placed, but also brought Track and Field fans to their feet in an exciting display of championship pole vault talent as well as audience-pleasing showmanship. A crowd pleaser, Brandon has bought new and enthusiastic audiences to the sport. The first on July 27, 2010  Brandon won the Silver Medal for Puerto Rico at the XXI Central American and Caribbean Games in Mayaquez to standing room only crowds. The media flocked to Brandon for TV interviews and headline press coverage amongst thousands of autograph seeking fans. Next up on Aug 6, 2010 Brandon was invited by officials to complete at the Clovis North American Championships and once again was the crowd favorite and lead story in press coverage. Considered "the one to watch' at this early stage of his Elite career, Brandon's dedication and skill at Pole Vault continues rapidly forward toward the 19'+ mark with a determined momentum on the 2012 Olympic Games.  

Total Sports Management specializes in contract negotiation, competition scheduling, sponsorship, personalized marketing and promotion, career guidance and support, which is just what Estrada was hoping for at this stage of his athletic career:

"I was pretty excited when things were finalized with Total Sports Management. I had hoped to be a part of great management team that would handle the business end so that I can just focus on progressing in the vault and jumping high. Total Sports Management with Chris Layne is among the best of the best so I couldn't be happier. Tim Mack [2004 Olympic Games gold medalist, Pole Vault] is also represented by Total Sports Management, and he is someone who I've always looked up to - so it’s kind of surreal. My plan now is to just to continue to improve and keep making my goals. I'll be representing Puerto Rico so I hope to get qualifying marks for World Championships in Korea and then the Olympics in London the year after." - Brandon Estrada
