American pole vaulter Sam Kendricks is the reigning World Outdoor Champion in pole vault. He has shared his insights on how to pole vault.
Kendricks illustrated the three different parts of the pole vault, especially since it is a complicated event. He went over the run-up (where a tape measure comes in handy), the bungee (or bar to illustrate the obstacle above them) and the actual pole. While every pole vaulter uses the same runway, he noted that they all use it in different ways, and explained the mathematics and physics of the sport. He subsequently went over the rules of the sport. Overall, this is an informative video and step-by-step tutorial that answers many questions that viewers and sports fans might have about pole vault. His passion for his sport is evident throughout the video.
