I am going to try and interview Kellie Suttle tomorrow. What questions would you like me to ask?

Hint: She is a two-time Olympian and just made the finals of the recent indoor world championships.

Pole grip, pole size, push off, 40-60 yard and/or meter speed. You have an amazing website. Thank you for all your efforts.

Ask her one of these if you could:
- What is the one thing that you will take away from pole vault for the rest of your life?
- Who is your biggest influence in her life, within the pole vault realm and outside of it?
- How do you get six pack abs like that?

And for fun:
- What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen sallow?

Have you ever realized that you're one of two (maybe the last if dragila hangs it up) original girl (OG) vaulters left? Any thoughts on that?

In your opinion, who do you think will be next american female to make a splash internationally or are they all pretenders?

Do you design your own tattoos? Plans for your next one?

Most gratifying athletic accomplishment?

Most dissappointing athletic experience?'

Which professional trackster deserves a punch in the mouth and why?

You mean an African or European swallow.
