I dont think the qestion if i serious about PV is the right question.
I drive to the national athletic stadium to start learn to Pole Vault but what i get from the PV coach is "I'm not interested".
What am I supposed to do when the main PV coach in Israel say to me sentence like this? i'm ask him to tell me why, to explain to say something!
but he doing whit the head "no" with sour wuss and i didn't know what to do. I askd him for a chance and he told me that he have no reason to take me. He didn't want guys who will jump 4.00 or even 5.00, when I insisted he told me with angry face "how well you do at best, 4.00?!" i told him, give me a chance mybe i will do god results, mybe 5.00. He answer me "I want guys that will do 6.00!" I'm not interested train you. What i should do, overflow on the floor? cry? might argue till dawn?
The thing is that he is the only coach in Israel Pole Vaulters made something of him.
The main reason i think he didn't want me is because i look "big", especially wide and with excess fat (I weighs 191,8 lb Height 5"10) , but I see no reason to start practicing and get in shape and while training my athletic appearance will Increasingly better.
How exactly my motivation to PV will be high when this is my "negative reception" i got. Im not a 13 years old that need discipline rates to improve in something, i just need a coach that know to talk, and communicate with his people, and simply guide them to their Individual success, im asking to much? =/
By the way after i told the Professional manager of the Association what happened he send me to one of the sprints coach (the biginners one), without explaining anything to me, like a 13 year old kid.
I ask him "what's up" and he told me, "Don't worry, will be fine" and "Do not give up". I wll ask you this forum guys, what am I supposed to feel with all this anonymous behavior?
I did not whine or nag too much with questions because i saw they not eager to explain.
By the way i do 8.81 in the first 60 meters running, the sprint coach ask me to do. I am such a bad case that should give me a pole vault?
