What Spikes Was Renaud Wearing?

They kind of look like the Zoom Long Jump, but no zipper and different velcro. Prototype PV3?

Re: Charlies Challenge

Where are all the 19 foot vaulters? I feel like you discredit the sport by making it sound too easy. Your point is true, grip 16'6 and you will probably jump close to 19'. Guess what though. Gripping 16'6 is not easy! That is about what Renaud grips and he is jumping 6.04 right now. And guess what, ...

Charlies Challenge

Ok. So Charlie posted in the coaches forum that he would coach any guy that could grip 16'6 or any woman that could grip 14'6 and have them jump over 19' and 16' in 8 weeks. I usually try and stick up for people when they get picked on but this is a bit much 1) You posted in the COACHES FORUM! No on...

Re: Help with pole transitions

Altius, I only raise their grips when moving to stiffer pole keeping the end ex the same. So the pole isn't softer or stiffer, juts a longer lever to rotate. That's why I am trying to figure out the exact flex transition so I know how much to move their grip. And pv2020 if we are talking about pace...

Re: Help with pole transitions

Does anyone have any advice on the flex comparison between 4.60 and 4.75 poles. I know from 4.75 to 4.90 and 4.90 to 5.00 you pretty much just keep going down on flex for a bigger pole ( a 15.0 flex on 4.75, 4.90, and 5.00 should be about the same gripping the same). But what is the conversion from ...

Re: Eligibility Question.

Do not listen to anyone that says do it, but do not listen to anyone that says do not do it. Just find out the real rule for your state. Every state is different. Some states you can jump unattached anywhere you want high school/college/club/elite. Others you can only jump in high school, in that st...

Re: Akron Pole Vault Convention Asking For Trouble

#1) If you do not really know what makes a D1 meet, do not argue this topic because you are wrong. #2) Akron may have asked if the meet could count and did their homework but you do not really "get meets sanctioned", you are just expected to do them right and show the paperwork after that ...

Re: Akron Pole Vault Convention Asking For Trouble

Hold on now Mr. All Caps. You will not find a much bigger fan of the event than myself but I do know the rule book and have a good understanding of how the NCAA works. I personally think it is dumb that Reno marks do not count but the rules say they don't. I personally would not protest a mark that ...

I do not know if this video argues in favor of my argument or against it. But I think it is something that needs to be discussed. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=660910447294384&set=vb.117569474961820&type=3&theater The athlete in this video is probably one of the most athletic pole...

His website list 6.64s with 1m start before laser http://www.renaud-lavillenie.com/pages/Levolution_de_mon_record-1265999.html Regardless: Your comment about 10.7 is exactly the problem. It is not that fast, and I do not think many vaulters could do it! In the NCAA decathlon, which is where most the...

Re: Pole Vault Combine

I do strongly agree that more people need to run faster on the run way as well as start working their grips up. I feel as if it is easier to teach technique than grip height. I have personally seen guys that can grip high slowly get better by improving their technique while guys with 'perfect' techn...

Akron Pole Vault Convention Asking For Trouble

The NCAA does not allow for the Reno Pole Vault Summit marks to count because it is not a real track and field meet. The Akron convention was added a track and field meet to go along with it this year to try and get the marks to qualify, however I think it may be a stretch to think the NCAA is going...
