I read in an article that the Russian Method to Pole Vaulting is/has been know to be a more superior way to vaulting than the modernized vaulting methods here in America. The Bubka Russian Style Vaulting..which is typically one fluid movement from when the vaulter picks up the pole until he lands in the pit, is that the key to becoming a successful vaulter is to position the pole as high to the vertical as possible at take off. The tip of the pole is dropped into the MIDDLE of the box as the tip slides to-wards the back of the box the vaulter forcibly punches both hands high overhead and leaves the runway before the pole hits the back of the box, this increases the vaulters energy and the pre-jump enables the pole to reach its highest point vertically at the instant it hits the back of the box.
Does anyone know anything about this?? and what do you think about this method which i think is great because it has really helped my jumping alot.
