Re: USATF Indoor Women - Saxer wins with 4.71!

I believe (although I may have missed a mark) that this is the list of those with qualifying jumps from 1/1/13 to today. 1 Suhr 5.02 2 Silva 4.9 3 Isinbaeva 4.89 4 Spiegelberg 4.79 5 Bleasdale 4.77 6 Rogowska 4.76 7 Svobodova 4.76 8 Hutson 4.75 9 Savchenko 4.75 10 Murer 4.75 11 Kiriakopoulou 4.72 12...

Re: NCAA MPV - Irwin 5.70, Whitt 5.65, Blankenship Kendricks 560

Once Irwin made his first attempt at 5.70, Whitt needed 5.75 to win.

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

I think we can all agree that at the end of the day to most important elements to sustained success a high level are coaching, training environment, commitment, etc. To me, the exact method used by the athlete to get by is irrelevant with the caveat that it does not interfere with training either ph...

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

Of course Facebook followers won't help anyone jump higher. However, there is the potential that social media can help to build a community that can in turn lead to gaining some financial support. And I don't think it is controversial to say that financial support does play a role in building a succ...

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

To some extent there is definitely rebranding. However, to the vast majority of people in this country, even the top names in pole vault are complete unknowns. Pole vault is an exciting sport and most people that see it for the first time in person are amazed by it. But truthfully, those newcomers d...

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

That comment was directed at the original response which stated athletes should not use social media at all. I just don't like the idea of criticizing people for using blogs, twitter, etc. I give them credit for trying to build a brand. I'm sorry if you took offense to my statement. I applaud your e...

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

I totally agree that shameless self promotion is counterproductive. My point is that there is plenty of room between no use of social media and shameless self promotion that not only isn't harmful to training but can actually be helpful to athletes by creating funding opportunities that would not ha...

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

Perhaps an additional chunk of money offered to those that stay off the blogs, tweets, facebook and all the other garbage until they do jump high. Less self promotion and more focus on 5.80. Once the 80 comes, the promotion will take care of itself. We have some talent, so lets put the head down, f...
