Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Kirk: The quote that he's accusing me of changing does appear to have been changed from "relies on his thumb grip" to "relaxes his thumb grip", but (to my knowledge) the only way that could happen is if PVDaddy himself changed it. AFTER I quoted him (at about 6:09 PM), but BEFORE...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Lavillinie has found a superior method of Pole vaulting as compared to the PB method through his low COG take off and swing and the fact that he does a much better job of not fighting the poles elemental rotation (in his case counterclockwise).

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Notice Kirk changed my quote? This is what I said: I believe lavillenie relaxes h is thumb grip with his bottom hand so that it is resting on his fingers. This also lowers his COG some but I believe he dies this mostly to allow for a more free pole rotation. This is how kirk quoted me: I believe lav...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

I believe lavillenie intentionally presses up with the bottom hand to lower his COG.
I believe lavillenie relaxes his thumb grip with his bottom hand so that it is resting on his fingers. This also lowers his COG some but I believe he dies this mostly to allow for a more free pole rotation.

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

I could go into great length to quote a LOT of dumb things Kirk has said over the years but that is not why I'm here. It takes to much work. It takes away from the discussion. I just love learning and want to understand the best way to vault on a flexible pole? I have been told by many, that the Kno...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Oh for the record Will (Since Kirk seems to be going out of his way at every length to mock me and to make false accusations and assumptions) when you ask "Did you make that?" I thought you were referring to my post and not the Vid that PVstudent had previously posted on this thread (I tho...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

There, PVDaddy is back on my ignore list. Enough said. Kirk I have had enough of your rudeness Kirk and I am happy to call you the Hy...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Kirk: These ideas of PVDaddy appear to have been plagiarized from Air-Strike, with just enough extra spin to make it totally JUNK SCIENCE! I do a great deal of research from a variety of sources. Yes I did get some of my ideas from Airstrike so what? These words are entirely my own. Two drastically ...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Will, You do understand that what I have been addressing right along is the horizontal counterclockwise rotation of the pole and NOT the poles rotation to the crossbars right?
