A scripture that makes me think of all you girls and guys pole vaulting....

Habakkuk 3:19
The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to go on the heights.

short pegs

Unread postby dubjones » Thu Feb 27, 2003 3:20 pm

I don't think they are talking about making the pegs even shorter, just discussing the current (55cm) rule.

High jump standards (pegs?) are not affected by this rule.

I don't have my rule books with me, but there are some items that need to be clarified. I am not sure what the new rules are for cross bar ends. I belive, but am not sure, that colegiate/HS bars can still have square ends, but that the IAAF rule requires that there be only 1 flat surface.
I'll look into that tommrow, but if someone knows the answer fell free to let the rest of us know.

Whoa Nellie! Eric Eshbach @ 5.53M/18-01.75! Last year Eric’s performances started to fade toward the end of the indoor season. This year he appears to be peaking at just the right time! Was well over 18-01.75! :yes:

Arkansas Women Vaulters

Unread postby vaultfan » Sun Mar 02, 2003 11:30 pm

Those Arkansas women really put up some impressive marks placing 1-2-3 at the SEC conference meet in Gainesville.

Stacie Manual -- 13-08.25
April Steiner -- 13-05
Jennifer Culp -- 13-05

Makes you wonder what they will do for an encore in Fayetteville! :D
