This is an old post, but I'm now looking for the same information. I found this website

http://en.organisasi.org/translation/po ... -languages

but I can't tell if someone translated literally or if these are actual terms used for "pole vault". There's also the question of whether we want "pole vault" as a noun to name the event or as a verb - and, if as a verb, as the infinitive or with which person and number.

Oh - this isn't a grammar forum? Ooopppsss.

Thank you to anyone who can help more with these words.
