would you be jumping into sand or sawdust for this retro meet or would you be taking the easy way out with the current foam rubber. also, would you use a synthetic runway or cinders.

here is a thought: if an athlete is just starting vaulting will it matter which way you teach them to hold the pole. maybe if they are more powerful jumping off of their right foot they should learn to vault lefty.
