Pole Vault

Pole vaulting is a sport that has been there since the 16th century, and there are also indications that the Ancient Greeks practiced it. However, modern pole vaulting began in the 1850s in Germany, and over time, the sport has enjoyed some changes and improvements in both the equipments and techniques.

Pole vault competitors are supposed to vault over a horizontal bar that is 4.5m long, and this is achieved by first sprinting along what is called a runway, using the pole at the “stop board” to haul themselves over the bar, while seeking the greatest height, without knocking the bar off. The competitors are allowed 3 attempts with different heights, and they have the options of passing a height and advancing to a higher level, however, the athlete is only allowed three attempts, and failure in all will result in their disqualification.
