Part 1: Intro, Legends, & Renaud Lavillenie
Part 2: The Rest of Men's Pole Vault

Time to move on to the women's game! :)

I talked about Yelena Isinbayeva in Part 1. She hasn't won a World Championships since 2013, but still, her presence in the sport has always been huge. With her retirement, we officially move to a post-Isinbayeva era, and it's going to be really interesting to see the new generation stepping up.

I hope you've enjoyed this fandom primer/pimping post! ♥ If you have any questions, want me to add another vaulter, and/or have any corrections, please don't hesitate to get in touch. 2017 is going to be a great year for pole vault, I can feel it in my bones! :)

Hello everyone! This is a fandom primer/pimping post for the grand sport of pole vault and its athletes. It's been great fun to put together and I hope it's enjoyable and/or useful! :)

Pole vault (prosaic): An athlete sprints down a track carrying a pole. At the end of the track, they plant the pole in the box, transferring their momentum into the pole and using it to soar into the air. At the peak of their ascent, they let go of the pole and attempt to clear a bar without knocking it down.

Pole vault (poetic):

The Legends )

Renaud Lavillenie )

On to Part 2!
