Re: forcing and controlling the bend

Re: Vaulter Not Swinging Through and Dropping Shoulders

Beyond the pulling of her bottom hand, I suspect that she is under at take off. In the one picture that show her leaving the ground, she is at least a foot under. It would be helpful to see a full vault that includes her run.

Re: Pole vault in the rain

What Kirkb said plus grab at couple of large trash bags to keep your pole grips dry and your track bag drip. Add four or five towels to dry your hands. Caulk will help in light rain but stickum is useful for heavier rain.
