Re: appendix to the take off point in fg. vaulting

to adtf acad. from nesfastus nefestum: I doubt that any vaulter ever intentionally strives to take off under ( or ever has ). however, the fact remains that it has , for whatever reason, always been a highly successful variation and I believe always will be. the technique of the fg. vault progresses...

Re: appendix to the take off point in fg. vaulting

to I am a walrus, from vault heretic: I would agree that vaulters all have flawed technique ( including bubka ) and all are imperfect athletes. we live in an imperfect reality. the difference ( philosohically ) between the supporters of the b/p model and myself, as I see it, is that the b/p model su...

appendix to the take off point in fg. vaulting

1. I despute the claim that mack moved his take off point out. based on videos, including the 04 oly. trials and all his vaults in the 04 oly. games, mack consistently took off about 9" under. 2. It is my point of view, that whatever you call it, the vaulter should not leave the ground before t...

Re: appendix to does the russian model represent ideal tech.

I continue to contend, as I previously stated, that the b/p model has strict parameters . this means that a limited number of elite vaulters fit the model well. vaulters who seek to emulate the b/p model, but cannot successfully do so, are in effect devotees of the b/p model, but not exponets of it....

Re: appendix to does the russian model represent ideal tech.

I agree with alot of what adtf academy wrote. howerver, to expnd on my last point: In his first post on my orginal article,launder wrote that the term technical style was meaningless. he also later claimed that hartwig and gibilisco followed the p/b model. well, if you expand the definition of the b...

Re: The location of the take off point in fiberglass pole vaulti

I will state again that except for a few exceptions, virtually all the respondents to my posts seem to believe with absolute certainty that 1 ideal model exists in the pv. in addition they believe that the b/p model is that one ideal model. again, the intensity of these beliefs are to me, are very s...

Re: appendix to does the russian model represent ideal tech.

as I have previously stated, visual analysis ( which consitues empirical evidence ) of large numbers of elite vaulters convinces me that there are certain elements of technique that are virtually universally employed by nearly all of them. at the same time many other aspects of technique vary signif...

appendix to does the russian model represent ideal tech.

1. petrov describes his model ( by this the writer means a standard or example such as bubka's tech. style, for imitation or comparison ) in a detailed manner in several sources. the best single source is the 13th congress of the european athletics coaches association The Jumps 1985 ed. Another good...

The location of the take off point in fiberglass pole vaulti

In my last article "Does the russian technical model represent ideal technique?"I attempted to utilize an abbreviated form of the scientific method ( the empirical method ) to prove that there is no one ideal technical model. A major problem encountered with this apporoach was the general ...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

vcoach/ First of all I think we must clarify what is meant by the term model. webster's dictionary defines it as: a standard or example for imitation or comparison. therefore the inidvidual technical style of a given vaulter becomes the standard or example in the model ( as bubka is in the b/p model...

Re: Does the Russian model represent ideal technique?

altius/ 1.as to the question of bubka's speed, I chose to believe the orignal info from his competive days. the new info sounds suspicicously like revisonism to me. 2.as to the superiority of bubka's technique: as I see it bubka was just an improved version of j. pennel, who I consider to be the tru...
