I'd guess they're used to training in crappy weather and bad winds so they're the least affected by the conditions.

If you always have a tailwind, nice temps, sun, and/or an indoor option, you are probably going to struggle in adverse conditions.

Gergel is a past Illinois State Champ in high school. She vaulted at a school that does not have a pit or any poles. I coached against her for four years. Wonderful young lady. Congrats to her.

in highschool Melissa had to go to another school to vault cuz marian catholic didnt have pits/track/poles/coach...she had to borrow poles ...and got injured for almost her entire senior season....its always AWESOME to see someone go from those conditions to NCAA champ
