Re: MASTERS PV SUMMIT NOW A REALITY

Thanks Bruce and Doug!! We will make announcements here as well. The plan is a Friday evening social at my house before the event Saturday. Elite coach Mike Bartolina has been added as our lead instructor as well as two time Olympian from Australia, Simon Arkell (5.80m/19' 1/4").

Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

Karen I'm late to the party on this topic as I'm seeing it for the first time tonight. I try to help by making donations to vaulters from time to time. Maybe I can add some bucks to your pool? Let me know if that might work - polevaulter@msn.com. Congrats on what you are doing!

Re: Lavilenie uses triple jump spikes

Sure! They also tend to have a slightly wider heel so you don't roll over at take off. Worth a try!

Re: Lavilenie uses triple jump spikes

Lots of vaulters use TJ spike because of the heel padding and stability. I've had to Achilles surgeries so I absolutely have to.

If you look under this forum by region you can see who is around you. That said, Michigan is a very active masters vault state. Welcome back!! Great to have you!

Here's a chart to check your grip against height - http://www.bubbapv.com/Pages/dj.htm
A 10' 6" grip is a 9'.

Re: Shade Weygandt turns pro

Respectfully, money is not an issue in her family. I respect the decision and her reasons. Could it have anything to do with losing a coach? Sure to maybe? But I know she's got great friends and family around her so any game plan has been well thought out. I love watching her vault. Bubba
