Favorite online videos for brand new beginners?

Unread postby rainbowgirl28 » Mon Mar 21, 2011 11:53 pm

I have a cousin in middle school who wants to pole vault. I think they have a tryout period or something.

What online videos do you recommend to introduce someone to the sport? It necessarily doesn't have to be instructional. Ideally I'd like something that includes a mix of ages and ability levels, so that he's not just seeing big guys with big pole bends jumping 19'+.

I enjoy the world youth Olympics and mondo's jumping. Very inspirational and show a broad range of "styles"

There are of course a lot on youtube. On my Youtube channel
http://www.youtube.com/atlegu
I have slow motion videos of relatively young vaulters (9 to 11 years), Mondo´s newest World record, some really good high school kids, olympic champion Nick Hysong and Mark Hollis from the Pole Vault summit ++

In addition some videos from practice.

Thorsten Mueller made this inspiring video as a project in his education:

And the 6 meter project video from the german elite vaulters:

If any of these video's give them the desire to be a vaulter, then the 6 video's on this users channel might give them a good start:
