Re: Russian Style Pole Vaulting..

First, I didn't read the entire thread, probably won't. My opinion about the prejump and freetake off after chasing that 'white wale' for 2 1/2 years...

Re: No more pole vault at Oklahoma University

OBU in Shawnee has a good program, with an outstanding vault coach and has an indoor vault facility.

Nah, I made it a non-issue. I'm moving in a few weeks anyway and their season is over.

Just Venting

Sorry to do this but I've worked really hard and needed to vent somewhere. So I worked at a certain university as an assistant professor for almost 2 1/2 years.
