Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Two drastically different techniques for covering the pole. Bubka swings his take off leg all the way to the top of the pole. His legs continue to climb skyward and here too he must battle the forces of gravity in his swing. Lavillenie is not even trying to get his feet to the top of the pole. His l...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

When Lavillenie lifts his drive knee into take-off, his knee is pointed down more than Bubka's and his drive knee heel is raised to the horizontal and comes very close to striking him (If it does not?)in the buttocks. His COG is further lowered as he lower's his drive knee foot. Both of His feet are...

Re: Take off step

AVC Coach, if you have some great advice for this, why not share them here, so other vaulters can benefit?

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

Kirk: but I hadn't noticed how early he tucked. I'll look for that. While your looking at that. I suggest you take a good hard look at just how much faster his pole is rotating then Bubka'a Pal! Or for that matter anyones! Take a good look! Does his feet come to the pole or is it the pole coming to ...

Re: Take off step

Did I recommend to do this? No. In fact I recommended just the opposite! Stretching is a psychological problem that many if not most have a hard time overcoming. They feel a need to go to that same take-off spot (even though that spot is actually more dangerous and less beneficial now that they are ...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

So rather than bringing his feet to his top hand, he simply allows the very fast rotating pole to bring his top hand to his feet! :idea:

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

I think this question of mine is still unanswered: KirkB wrote: What I'm really struggling with is how he can invert so quickly, without the aid of a "good" swing (like SB's), and in comparison to other 6.00m tuck-shooters? :confused: Is it possible to answer this in a single sentence or ...

Re: Take off step

Enloe, I do not recommend this but I saw it work. A tennis shoe was placed on the line and nobody stretched. Better off just to imagine its there!

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

So to me the Lavellinie method of vaulting appears to offer 3 Main advantages. 1) It allows a shorter and even slower vaulter to cover a longer stiffer pole. 2) It allows the vaulter plenty of time to cover the pole and 3)It allows the vaulter plenty of time to line up for fly-away. Those are some d...

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

The more the pole compresses and the faster and shorter the chord gets, the more it rotates and moves to the clearance plane
.

Why is that Will? Also,Is there anything a vaulter can do beside compression, that would effect the speed and or amount of that rotation?

Re: GRV: Lavillenie - From Stall Swing to World Record

I would also like to point out that Lavillinie has managed to cover the pole so quickly while performing his double leg tuck, (I believe that is because of his Low COG swing, the shortness in his tuck and the speed and position of the pole in its rotation at the time of his tuck.) that he has time t...
