Pole vaulting dates all the way back to the ancient Greeks. Modern competition began in Germany around 1850. It has been a full medal event at the Olympic Games since 1896 for men and since 2000 for women.

The world record vault was set by Sergey Bubka at 6.14 meters (20 feet 1.75 inches) all the way back in 1994.

Happy Birthday to Ami's mom :P

Happy Birthday Momma!!!!!


(I still think pole vaulting started with jousting knights that fell off their horses!)

Thanks for the birthday wish, Jason. Hope the "ancient Greek" part isn't what triggered your memory!!!!
