Incorrect. It appears to you that the pole has stopped rotating because the bottom of the pole is relatively stationary, and while the pole is uncoiling, only the sail piece is moving. However, the chord of the pole is still rotating forward
I would sure hope the chord of the pole moves forward as the pole uncoils!!!? But that was not the subject of your statement now was it???
The subject of your statement was the forward rotation of the pole!
Let's see what you posted:
A vaulter who pulls will slow pole rotation and break the swing
Who's the one confusing the reader?
Now examine Bubka performing a very strong pulling action in his most famous Vault (His highest hip clearance ever!) at frame 3:54. Notice that it coincides at the exact moment he breaks at the hips.
Incorrect. The vaulter cannot pull while simultaneously dropping the shoulders. They are opposing forces. Pulling would preclude the hips from swinging over the shoulders as fast as possible, and it would make it impossible for the vaulter to perform a clean on top of the pole. I believe you think you are seeing a pulling motion because you are watching these videos in slow motion, or frame by frame. Watch vaulters in real time, and consider that the speed of ther swing is a result of downswing speed, pole speed, and energy from the runway. Any pole vaulter who swings their hips to their hands without tucking will confirm that pulling is incorrect.
Granted the strong pulling action of the top arm Bubka demonstrates in frame 3:54 is a very quick action. But it is clear and indisputable! The elbow and the pole very clearly bend. I merely ask the reader to look for themselves. Also notice the rapid drop of the shoulder and the rise of the hips follow immediately afterward.

You have to qualify this statement, because there are lots of gymnastic manuevers, some that involve pulling, and some that don't
I'ts been very clear that we have been discussing the gymastic tap to the Giant from the beginning. More unnecessary distraction.
Also PVstudent draw all the Muller optical illusion lines you like and study them to your hearts content and complicate it all you like with your sophisticated jargon!
PV Daddy can carry on his fantastic ramblings because I would not deny him his right to free speech, free thought and any other right but I am going to exercise my right to ignore him on PVP topics in the advanced section.
You never gave me that right to begin with! So don't even think you could EVER deny it ! I could care less if you ignore my post. I will not deny you of that right. Also, of course I spend a great deal of time reading what others have to say about the vault and it does indeed have an impact on what I think and say about it. Its called research and learning from others. Many people do that. I highly recommend it!
