Re: Masters vaulter Paul Sinatra passes away

:(

Paul really was an amazing coach. I loved the discussions we would have on coaching, vaulting, counseling, and life during dusky summer practices. Good to know he soared over his final bar with ease -- he did always have such great form.

Re: Rope Vaulting - Yay or Nay?

Yay when there's a proper emphasis on safety. Although I'm sure it's exceedingly rare to find, my coach set up a pulley system and had us situated in climbing harnesses attached to a spotting rope. Mats were plentiful, helmets occasionally used, and the metal supports from which all of the equipment...

Samurai.

I have no idea where it came from, other than the fact that my name is Sami. So move the i and add in an ura, I guess. However, that was my name for four years at pv. :)

I had stress fractures and OCD lesions in my navicular bones and talonavicular joints (I probably murdered those spellings, but oh well.) which kept me out of pv for my last three years of high school, mostly because they couldn't diagnose them. One of the ideas for treatment after going through sto...

She wasn't on there, but as this is fairly (ok, really) recent, I thought that I'd put it out there:

Veronica Stimson (13', CA) is going to UC Berkeley.

I'd also be afraid of a drunk person with a gun or bow in their hands, no matter how skilled they are.

Um...so anyone have any decent ideas on how to save our sport? I agree with the idea of holding all of the events within the main stadium (or very near to it), but isn't safety a consideration that has to be dealt with? Are today's stadiums and tracks large enough to contain all of the events and ru...
