Re: Hooker injures adductor

I feel that as long as he doesn't hurt it again before or during the competition then i feel that he will be able to jump 5.80 no problem. But man, what is up with everyone being injured this year!?

Re: Opinion of Technique (Kurt Dunn and Rory Quiller)

I think i understand, but to me bubka had a "two hand release" because he loaded so much energy into the pole with his transfer of energy being so great through the vault that the pole throws him, and not so much a choice of a single or double hand release. He is just launched off the pole...

Re: Opinion of Technique (Kurt Dunn and Rory Quiller)

To me it seems as though the vault you compliment most is a strait pole vault. I can understand what you say with grip width and the upswing being more efficient with a pole that does not bend or is not as long as the ones used today, though i will say that too many vaulters over bend there, how wou...

Re: Opinion of Technique (Kurt Dunn and Rory Quiller)

Just a few notes... One, when talking about the grip width and chest drive, if you were to widen Kurts grip how would it improve his chest drive? Two, if you look at Rorys vault, explain how with his grip (looking wider) allows for more chest drive because Rory seems to be blocking himself out(Pushi...

Re: Hooker feels better and better each day

Well as far as 6 meter clearances that only i can think of in just over a little more than a year, you have Hooker, Walker, and Lavillenie, and all of them seem to be coming around quite nicely for Worlds. I just hope there is some good coverage so i can watch a friend in the dec and we all can watc...

Re: Coaching, What a way to make a living

It is pretty sad when head coaches feel they have a better understanding of a specific event and end up changing a good coaching staff for no reason. Sadly enough, head coaches have the power to do what they think is best, and sometimes it works out and other times it doesn't.
