Pole Vault

What holds the pole-vault stick on the ground?

There is nothing that actually holds it in the ground. But there is a 'box' that the pole is planted into, this is like a hole where the pole slides into and stops.

Box: A trapezoidal indentation in the ground with a metal or fiberglass covering at the end of the runway in which vaulters "plant" their pole. The back wall of the box is nearly vertical and is approximately 8 inches in depth. The bottom of the box gradually slopes upward approximately 3-feet until it is level with the runway. The covering in the box ensures the pole will slide to the back of the box without catching on anything. The covering's lip overlaps onto the runway and ensures a smooth transition from all-weather surface so a pole being planted does not catch on the box.

What are the standard dimensions for long jump and triple jump runways as per IAAF standards?

The triple jump , sometimes referred to as the hop, skip and jump is a track and field sport, similar to the long jump. The competitor runs down the track and performs a hop, a bound and then a jump into the sand pit. The triple jump was inspired by the ancient OlympicGames and has been a modern Olympics event since the Games' inception in 1896.According to IAAU rules, "the hop shall be made so that an athlete lands first on the same foot as that from which he has taken off; in the step he shall land on the other foot, from which, subsequently, the jump is performed." The current male and female world record holders are Jonathan Edwards of Great Britain, with a jump of 18.29 m (60 ft 0 in), and InessKravetz of Ukraine, with a jump of 15.50 m (50 ft 10 in). Both records were set during 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg.

How do you do a pole vault?

The amount of information needed to safely pole vault is truly staggering. Remember to start off very small! Personally, i did drills with a PVC pipe for three weeks before i was allowed to touch a pole. Start by completing simple pole raising drills and move your way up to planting drills, then to a drill with a short jog into a plant. Always remember it is better to vault safely then to try to jump over your limit!

In pole vaulting how heavy is the pole?

It depends on your weight. For example if you weigh 130 pounds you would use a pole that has a max weight of 130 pounds, and usually the poles with a lighter weight on them are usually thinner because they don't need to hold up so much weight. It also depends on the height. poles vary in heights.
