Re: US Agent offering cash incentive for elite male vaulters

Social media is for those who wish to follow someone's path. If you don't want to follow don't check them. If you're against it and are checking them anyways well I guess it's purpose is working. To share their journey to family, friends and fans. If you're against it and post on your own twitter, F...

Re: 2017 Worlds - London or Doha?

The weather and winds in London are sketchy.....


From the reports I saw on when Doha tried to bid for Olympics the entire stadium will be air conditioned and temperature controlled. The money and resources Doha has is outstanding.

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

I'm not sure I follow how I'm comparing apples to oranges. I've picked out, what I believe to be, the single most distinguishing factor that differentiates "Tuck and Shooters" from the Perov/Bubka model. I've seen plenty of "tuck and shooters" employ a Petrov/Bubka model take-of...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

I could post equations and pictures, but lets use basic logic to more easily understand it. It's much easier to bend/load any pole by applying force at the very end of the pole. This is exactly how Jan Johnson created the "best flex" chart. The lower your grip the more force it takes to b...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

Before I state this I in no way teach a tuck and shoot style of vault. I grasp its principles and reasoning I just don't coach it. However, I would like to hear from superpipe as to how it is flawed according to physics? How do the principles in its basic design go agaisnt modern physics? Please exp...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

Physics does NOT state either is logical, that's the whole point. A straight trail leg swing is better by ALREADY defined laws of physics AND what human biomechanics allows of human movement. This is proven science, not theory. Why are people trying to "re-invent the wheel" when is has al...

[quote="altius]ADTF - I, and imagine most who know anything about the vault in the USA, appreciate your dedication and commitment - and your success - as a coach in the face of all manner of problems that make it difficult for you to achieve your goals. So I understand your emphasis on the prac...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

I beg to differ. The technique has been there for a long time to accomplish big push offs well over 4'. The problem is 95% of the world refuses to use the same technique as Bubka. More specifically, a straight trail leg swing. Most vaulters are taught the "tuck and shoot" method ( even if...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

I've mentioned this before somewhere. Stiff pole vaulters at their best were getting 3' to 3'6" push Bent pole vaulters at their best are getting 3'0 to 4' push with very few getting over 3'6" Increased push off is not quite the factor of the bent pole it seems. It's the huge advantage in ...
