    My uncle's hs was competing in a statewide many-event athletic championship. He was a football and lacrosse player. His school was very good but they were just shy of the right number of possible points needed to go on to nationals. So they saw that they could still enter the pole vault and all they needed was to enter and clear a bar once. Just one jump... How hard could it be? So they got one of their lighter athletes and he volunteered to jump. So he walks up to the prep area and he checks his form and watches real close as the other teams go. So he builds up enough confidence to make the attempt. Finally it's his turn, nationals are on the line! He walks up, picks up the bar, bends it a few times, checks his run up distance, and he's looking good. He backs up, aims, runs, plants the bar perfectly, and sails into the sky! Not a moment later he shrieks and wraps himself around the pole, hanging momentarily suspended at the top of the vertical pole! The pole crashes to earth, still with him wrapped around it. He lays there stunned on the track as his team runs over. They ask him what happened and he screams, "I'm afraid of heights!" Apparently he figured it wouldn't be an issue for that short period and no one thought to ask him!

      Three men at a prison were gathered by the warden and offered a chance to gain their freedom. The warden explained that if they can pole vault over the razor wire fence they can go home. The first man steps up and fails miserably. He's taken away to the infirmary to have his wounds tended to. The second man steps up and also fails. He walks away unharmed. The third man steps up and goes for freedom. He makes it over the fence and everyone is cheering for him, even the warden. The man is crying hysterically and the warden asks "why are you crying? You made it over the fence." The man responds, " yea, but my balls are still hanging up there."

      @asgacc not at all. It was part of the curriculum because it's an Athletics' event. It was very mild anyways, begginer stuff with a much shorter pole and a lower bar, but it was cool to see how the mechanics worked. It's pretty much a compound of a lot of other events motions

    • asgacc

      @asgacc I was studying Sports Science and we had to do Pole vaulting as part of the Athletics curriculum. It's actually really fun and really fucking hard, by far the most technical event of the Athletics. You've to run with perfect form or you can't get any speed with the pole in your hands, then you have to jump exactly where you're supposed to or you'll fall short or eat the bar and finally you need a lot of strength and flexibility to fight the pole and avoid the bar. Once you get over the fear of hurting yourself it's a really cool sport

    You would think they would figure out how to design those poles to not snap like that. Does that happen because their technique is fucked up and they are putting too much bend on it? Or does the pole have too much mileage on it?
