Pole Vault Videos

I don’t have anything new to post, so here are some videos of me pole vaulting in high school that I have been meaning to digitize and upload as a monument to when I was athletic and in shape (and, dare I say, hot). As a bonus the last video is me totally missing the mat and somehow managing to land and roll perfectly without hurting myself. Then you will see the swagger of a guy walking away from something he didn’t understand, but has to try and pull it off like it was on purpose.

    Mark, did you figure out what went wrong on the last vault?

    No Idea, my best guess is I planted my foot too far to the left instead of under me, but even then my momentum still should have been going forward. I don’t have enough physics to explain it, but I only did it once 🙂
