Re: interpretation of rule change

Wait. I think I misread what you posted originally. So your interpretation is that if the athlete clears the bar and doesn't make an attempt to throw the pole back...and the pole dislodges the bar, it's a make? Even if wind is not a factor? Surely that can't be the intention of this rule change. At ...

Re: interpretation of rule change

7-2-11: A crossbar displaced by a force disassociated with the competitor after he/she is legally and clearly over the crossbar shall not be a fault. Rationale: Addresses possible influence of an outside force on the crossbar on an otherwise successful attempt. The only examples I've seen of a &quo...

Re: Take off step

Did I recommend to do this? No. In fact I recommended just the opposite! Stretching is a psychological problem that many if not most have a hard time overcoming. They feel a need to go to that same take-off spot (even though that spot is actually more dangerous and less beneficial now that they are...

Re: Looking at buying Altuis poles?

We have been using Altius poles for about 5 years in our junior / senior high program. Planning to order more in the next few weeks.
