     Ukraine's Sergey Bubka attends a press conference after the
 Laureus Sports Awards in St. Petersburg, Russia, Monday,
                 Feb. 18, 2008. Bubka got the Laureus Lifetime Achievement Award.

    

   The pole vault is a very complicated event, there
   are many things involved.

            Sergei Bubka
 

      Often you need to take some risk, but it must be a
     realistic risk, you can't take a crazy risk.

      
  Sergei Bubka

 

       The strategy of my coach and me was that we looked at
       pictures of all the best pole vaulters from around the world,
       and we took the best parts from them, and we created a
       person that had never existed. We then started to work
       toward being such a person.

             Sergei Bubka

 

      You must have the ability, if I may say so, to use
     such a high grip. You must have perfect technique.
     Then you can move to a higher grip.

            Sergei Bubka

In the summer of 2005, Becca Gillespy and BJ Vandrovec
embarked on an epic pole vaulting road trip.
 One stop led them to Cadillac Ranch, just outside of Amarillo, TX.

Congratulations Jenn Stuczynski!!
First American Women over 16'-00" (4.88)

Stuczynski vaults to world lead – 4.88m

The world leading marks didn't only happen on the track. Jenn Stuczynski, whose 4.84 two weeks ago in Carson, California set an American Record, added four centimetres to that mark with a 4.88 clearance on her third attempt here. Stuczynski passed until 4.54m, then cleared that and 4.64 on her first attempts.

With only China's Shuying Gao still jumping at 4.74, Stuczynski passed again. Gao, who had already set a Chinese and Asian record at 4.64, missed at 4.74. After only two jumps, Stuczynski then took on and cleared 4.88 in the swirling winds, then had the bar set to 5.03, a world record height, where she ended. At 4.88, Stuczynski is now tied with Russia’s former World record holder Svetlana Feofanova as the second-highest vaulter of all time.

              For those of you who did not attend the Pole Vault Summit 2007 up in Reno
              check out January 2007 Volume II
newsletter written by Coach Edwards.
              He wrote down his experiences there as a first time attendee.  I'm sure all
              the kids that were there will agree with him, "It was INCREDIBLE!"
