Re: Fear in take-off

If i were to grip 13' on a 13'6 pole, i would reach in my last 2 steps and jump at 6 feet again, causing me to be inside when really at around 13' my take off mark is around 7'. unless your sliding down the pole or your 8' tall it's impossible to grip 13' and take off at 6' without falling flat on ...

Re: indoor competition

Tom, good to hear from you. there is a sprinkler pipe that the standard will barely clear on the left at 16' but they will still go all the way up.
Becca, I will send you the names of the high school jumpers ( the top 2 girls)

Re: appendix to does the russian model represent ideal tech.

I have been reading all the posts on pvp about which technical model is best and have a few questions. first of all I'm just a long time high school coach. I have never coached college or elite vaulters so my expertise isn't at the same level as most of you posting here I have read btb and think it'...

IAAF rule question

at last years Prefontain meet one of the vaulters had a ring of tape just below her bottom hand that must have been close to 3/8 of an inch thick.
