    Catching the pole should grant him extra points. He did a great job.

    This is actually insane!! Daaamn I knew pole vaulting was intense but this slo-mo video really shows how hard this must actually be.

      How hard it must be? Pole vaulting looks very difficult to do, what are you talking!? 🤯

      And for some reason there are tons of hot women pole vaulters at the highest levels of the sport. They are the ones who should be getting endorsement deals not the freaking Kardashians 😆

      The vaulter could have cleared another 10-12 “…probably just wanted to look for the video👍

    This sport is so fascinating. I tried taking one of the poles in high school they had left out and i could hardly get off the ground. Insane athleticism required.

      You could hardly get the pole off the ground ? Brother you’d better start going to the gym if you’re that weak🤣🤣🤣. They’re hollow fiberglass poles😉

      So much of it is form though I was the same way but after lots of practice I finally got 7 feet which by pole vaulting standards is nothing but I’m finally getting somewhere and it’s not from strength

    The mechanics of his motion are spectacular. The catching of the pole is more than spectacular. Can only imagine how much time, practice, planning went into that catch! The mic drop of pole vaulting. Excellent!

      A lot of pole vaulters are gymnasts who had injuries, failed, were too tall or otherwise wanted to switch sports because the musculature and body control required to be good is quite similar between the two sports

    Holy crap. My highest was 7’6 last year, pole vault is starting again and I’ll hopefully get higher considering I weigh a bit less and have more control. Although I am still in middle school so I have to practice a bit. But how tf he do that so cleanly.

  • Lucinda Williams PrayerWarrior🙏🏾

    That was absolutely fantastic! It looked as if the pole did not give him enough leverage. I said to myself he wasn’t going to make it. He had more power in his push off the pole, than the pole itself gave him! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🤗

  • Knut Rosetten
    Knut Rosetten 22 days ago

    But this is not so uncommon, it happens rather often. I have seen it before. It all depends on how slow the pole falls down. It all depends on chance. If it stands up for awhile then it is not hard to catch it after you have landed.

  • Sandra Lyn
