The vault at Monumental Life Insurance Co. at Charles and Chase streets is one of many antiques in the building. It was built in 1939 for $50,000 and held all the company's assets until 1990, says Walter Weiss, a former treasurer. "The door will not close if there is as much as a pin on the floor," Weiss says. "It fits like a glove." The company opened its building to the public earlier this month as part of a yearlong celebration to mark its 150th anniversary.

Donnell Whittenburg rocked back and forth on his feet, his eyes boring into the vault table yards ahead of him as he waited behind the start line. It was Aug. 24, Day 2 of the 2014 P&G Gymnastics Championships at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, and the 20-year-old U.S. men's national team member was playing catch-up after finishing sixth two nights earlier. So Whittenburg, a Baltimore native who will be competing in the world championships starting Friday in Nanning, China, knew he had to nail a rare vault sequence - so dangerous that it was once thought to be impossible - if he wanted to medal.

That something may be a vault containing writings of British scientist and writer Sir Francis Bacon, some believe.But the anomaly could just be the footprint of an earlier search for Utopia.

Under Armour took on Nike and Adidas - and won. Beating out much bigger rivals to partner with the University of Notre Dame and its athletic teams catapulted the Baltimore-based sports brand onto an elite playing field, marketing experts say. The endorsement deal, announced Tuesday, signals how far fast-growing Under Armour plans to go and how it plans to get there. "It's a signal to their competitors, to the stock market, to the consumer, that they're in this for the long run," said Amna Kirmani, a professor of marketing at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business.

Trying to pick an outdoor track and field event in the spring of 2012, Hereford's Kaity Lynch eventually settled on the pole vault. At first, Lynch occasionally wondered about that decision. Racing down a runway with an 11- or 12-foot pole felt awkward, and there were a few shaky moments. "It was definitely scary the first couple of times," Lynch said. "But you kind of learn to trust yourself and that you know what you're doing. Once you really got used to doing it, you know you weren't going to hurt yourself.
