That may be so, but I am fighting a different clock. When you have a few more years under your belt you will appreciate what I'm saying. ;)

Re: Advice, lessons learn for starting to Pole Vault again at 37

Congratulations on the weight loss. That will have many advantages for fitness, health and vaulting. Welcome back to vaulting and I hope it is a life-long and enjoyable endeavor for you.

Re: NEW FREE POLE VAULT APP FOR SMARTPHONE

Question: Is use of a cell phone on the field during a competition allowed? I thought all electronic devices were banned. I'm asking that as a separate question for high school and college competitions. Thanks.

Re: Settling 6 Step Mid Convo

Maybe I'm missing something but it appears to me there is quite a significant difference between mids. Walker's is furthest out, with Borges then Lavillenie being almost the same, and Otto being closest to the pit. It seems about 5 feet difference between Walker and Otto.

Re: mat thickness?

the nfhs handbook does not specify a minimum thickness in the handbook To my surprise, it appears you are correct. At least in my 2010 rule book, Rule 7-5 Art 7 states, "The material in the system shall be high enough and of a composition that will decelerate the landing." Although the wo...
