How To Understand The Pole Vault
|Sport : Athletics|
The pole vault is quite a unique technique and discipline. If you are scared of heights, then it is probably not something to try! However once you have it down to an art then it can look spectacular and very impressive indeed!
So how do you understand the technique you need? The best way is to break down the movement to the five separate components.
The first of these is the run up, followed by the plant - where you place the pole into the ground. Then of course comes the take off, where you lift off into the air. Then there is the swing itself and - hopefully - the clearance of the set height at the top.
In order to practice pole vault you really need to do the real thing!
