Re: pole vaulter conditions

It's really not that uncommon for a D1 level dec to jump on 15s (I have even seen 490s, but the guys was REALLY tall, and really fast) his freshman year with no previous vault experience. You get these guys that are just animals athletically; it doesn't look pretty usually, and it looks even worse o...

Re: Kylie Hutson, Indiana State 4.51m WL, breaks pole, rips hand

This happened to a friend of mine a couple years back. I am not sure if he was the exception to the rule or not, but he had a quick return, and had really know long term effects from the injury. :yes:

Wow! And I thought Pre was a stud when he did 27:43 in 1974! :star:

Well let's not kid ourselves... 27:43 in 1974 was a stud.

Re: Wisconsin Rescinds Mandatory Helmet Rule

Wow, I did not know that was coming down the pipe... I don't know that anyone did really. My coach from HS is the president of the Wisconsin Pole Vault Coaches Association (albeit, a small niche... but president sounds impressive...). I heard that he found out about 2 hours before they went public.

Re: Speed training

I think a big thing that gets overlooked (esp. on this site sometimes) is to just be an athlete! Train hard at the sport you are in, you've got plenty of time to mature as an athlete and then specialize. Learn the ins and outs of competing, what its like to pump yourself up, and control that energy....

Re: The need for a cardiovascular base

3. Also do you really want to focus your training on the freak meets where you have to vault for over an hour? Perhaps if you trained a bit differently, you'd be a bit faster and would have cleared a higher height an hour earlier and never had to have a vault-off in the first place. Just saying. .....

Re: The need for a cardiovascular base

And for MANY kids, pole vault is not their number #1 priority. The advice on this board tends to be given as though all of the kids are aspiring to be the next Olympian, and without knowing very much about the big picture of the kid's life. One of the better things said on this forum in a long time...

Re: The need for a cardiovascular base

I think everyone is actually on the same page here, and are just getting all up in arms. My humble opinion-- Do you need cardio and endurance, yes, to a point. Do you need to be able to run a marathon, god no. If you have the energy to last 2 hours, and 12 jumps--at a high level--be that 13' or 18' ...

Re: Tarasov vs. Bubka

I am not really up on my history here. That said, did Bubka ever jump in "unofficial" meets (a mall vault, beach vault etc.) that the mark would not have counted as a WR? If so, why wouldn't he pull the bar up high then?
