    Pole Power
    The remarkable physics of a powerful vault By Adam Weiner Posted 01.02.2009 at 11:38 am 4 Comments
    It's rather hard to believe that the world record in the pole vault is over 20 feet. That's twice the height of the "high dive" at your local pool. Expertise in the pole vault requires speed, skill, strength, and kamikaze-style fearlessness. It also requires a method to convert the kinetic energy of the approach into the maximum possible gravitational potential energy. That's where the pole comes in. Pole vaulting without a pole is called the high jump, and although the world record in that event is an astonishing 8 feet or so, somewhere in the process of jumping, as we transfer horizontal motion into vertical motion, we lose some of the energy of the approach. Also, high jumpers can't approach the bar at a full sprint, because biomechanically you can't generate the maximum vertical push-off while running at top speed. However, notice those extremely flexible poles in the video. As long as they don't break, it's that elasticity which makes it possible to transfer the kinetic energy of the approach into elastic potential energy in the pole. The elastic energy is then reconverted to kinetic energy (with the motion redirected upward), and that is in turn transformed to gravitational potential energy at the top of the vault.

Pole Vaulting
The pole vault is a sport where the successful competitor must combine a high level of athletic prowess with the development of unerring and fluid technique. Pole vaulting also involves a consideration of the advanced technologies used to construct the pole; the physical characteristics of the pole will be critical to the generation of the lift necessary to take the athlete over the bar. As with many of the disciplines that are predominately in the public eye only during Olympic competition, the pole vault is a relatively simple event. The vaulters must clear a bar, positioned above a landing mat, using a long pole with which to propel themselves upward for leverage to assist in the clearing of the bar. The event commences with a run up along a track. The athlete runs as fast as possible, holding the long pole. The pole is thrust into a pre-positioned box on the track surface, and the athlete converts the forward motion along the track into vertical lift. The pole provides considerable flexion, as it absorbs and then releases the energy of the athlete generated by the approach as the pole is straightened. As the vaulter nears the bar, the pole is used for balance as the vaulter angles his or her body across the bar, falling onto the landing mats below. In international and Olympic competition, each athlete is provided with three opportunities to clear the determined heights. The winner of the competition is the last vaulter to have cleared a height; in the event of a tie, where one or more competitors have each missed three jumps at a height, the tie is broken through determining the least number of misses at the earlier heights.

Member of Lancaster girls track team dies at 16
Wednesday, February 4, 2009
By RANDY JENNINGS / The Dallas Morning News
month after suffering seizures that were caused by a form of encephalitis.
Sharla Butler was a sophomore at Lancaster.
Butler, a sophomore, was the youngest of Sonia and Raymond Butler's four children.
Two older sisters, Sha'Ray and Shira, also ran for Lancaster and attend Kansas and Jacksonville State (Ala.), respectively, on track scholarships.
Lancaster coach Beverly Humphrey said Sharla could have been the best in the Butler family and one of the best to compete for Lancaster.
As a 4-foot, 8-inch freshman, Butler advanced to the Class 4A Region II meet in the 400 meters.
"I had big plans for her," said Humphrey, who has coached Lancaster to eight straight state championships. "Her goal was to someday compete in the Olympic Trials, and I believe she could have done it." Members of the Lancaster team prayed together after Tuesday's practice. Family members thought she was improving after treatment, but Sha'Ray Butler said her sister had an eight-minute seizure on New Year's Eve. She was rushed to a hospital, but her condition deteriorated over the next few days. She eventually lost consciousness.

Pole Vaulting Tips
By Alex Oppenheimer eHow Contributor updated: December 1, 2009 I want to do this! What's This? Pole vaulting is a sport entailing strength, skill and concentration. Pole Vaulting Tips Pole vaulting is a track and field event most popularly recognized in the Summer Olympic Games , where men have been competing since 1896 and women since 2000. The objective is to use a pole, usually made of fiberglass or carbon fiber and measuring anywhere between 10 feet and 17 feet, to vault over a horizontal bar. Pole vaulting is a sport that takes much practice to be able to excel at and fine tuning of skills to make for a smooth attempt each time out. It is broken down into five main segments: approach, plant, takeoff, swing-up and clearance.
The Approach
  • The approach is the run or sprint down the runway leading up to the raised bar. This is done to create more generated energy in the process of planting the pole and, in turn, creating a greater potential of height.
