Everytime I make a breakthrough in my vaulting, something else goes wrong. I’ve been trying so hard to be taller coming into my take-off and driving my chest forward in an attempt to get on longer, stiffer poles. Well apparently those aren’t the best key words for me. Last weekend I competed in The New Balance Collegiate Invitational at The Armory in New York City. I felt fantastic during warmups and was determined to have a good day. I even took 2 attempts on my 5.10m – 14.0 flex pole in warmups but couldn’t quite penetrate enough on it either time. But it was the biggest pole I’d ever planted outside of the meet itself. I ended up starting the meet at 5.30m/17′ 4.5″on a 5m – 14.1, still the biggest pole I’ve ever started on but scraped the bar on the way down. I managed to clear it on my 3rd attempt, finally. I scraped the bar off on the backside all of my next 3 attempts at 5.40m/17’8.5″ and was out of the meet. Nobody ended up clearing 5.40m but I don’t care about that because IT WAS A COLLEGIATE MEET! I was embarrassed to say the least that I got 4th place in a college meet. The most frustrating part was feeling great Continue reading
Im sitting on the beach watching my last sunset in Perth and there is this cool haze in the air that makes the sun reflect off the water in this really amazing way. I can count 25 wind surfers and its cool enough to be able to relax on the sand without getting burnt.
What a week it’s been, forget the jumping, that wasn’t so good but this week is the exact thing that I needed. Im just can’t stand being indoors all the time, I like jumping indoors, competing that is, but it gets real boring real quick, training inside all the time. For the past 4 or 5 years I’ve really thought about getting out of the Midwest, at least while im competing and still jumping. Getting to where you can train outside and not freeze to death in the winter months. I could definitely live in Australia if it wasn’t so far from everyone I know and love. Anyway let me tell you about my week and why it’s been so awesome that I would consider living here.
First of all the temperature had been in the 90′s all week which has allowed me to get a real nice tan. Second training has been great, the track and facilities here are great and the wind has been a nice tail everyday I’ve been here. Except for the day of the meet, that was a little swirling but oh well, I guess it can’t be completely perfect. The hotel I’ve stayed at is right on the beach and I’ve swam in the Indian ocean almost every day. Sunday I went with Russ Winger, and Tara Continue reading
Salt Lake City wants to do it again in 2022.
Denver has a team in place to explore its exciting options.
Reno-Tahoe is chomping at the bit.
You don’t need an MRI to figure out that the Olympic Spirit is alive and well in the United States right now with the 2022 Olympic Winter Games just ten years away.
There was a time when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) was gasping for air after consecutive boycotts in Montreal, Moscow and Los Angeles. There were few cities willing to take the financial risk of hosting the Games, winter or summer. Sponsors or potential sponsors were leery of their involvement, television rights were chump change by comparison with the billions being garnered now, and there was doubt about what the future held.
That was then, and this is really now. Continue reading

It is the first such honor for a member of the Air Force track and field team.
HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. – Air Force junior Cale Simmonswas named to the Primetime Performers Weekly Honor Roll by CollegeSports360.com, the national website announced today (Feb. 14). Simmons, who took over the NCAA lead in the pole vault last weekend, was one of 13 track and field athletes recognized.
With an Academy-record clearance of 18’1¼”, Simmons took over the NCAA lead in the pole vault for the 2012 season during the final day of competition at the Air Force Invitational on Saturday, Feb. 11. Simmons easily won the event, while earning an automatic berth into the NCAA Indoor Championships.
His clearance, which was over a foot better than the rest of the field at the Air Force invitational, is the best clearance in the NCAA to date this season. It is also the fourth-highest vault in the U.S. for 2012, the third-best clearance in Mountain West history and the best mark in Academy history (indoor or outdoor).
His mark, which moved Simmons from sixth to first on the program’s all-time list, broke Nick Frawley’s2009 Academy Continue reading

MOSCOW, February 15 (RIA Novosti)
Double Olympic champion pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva set the third-best jump of the season of 4.81 meters to clinch her third title of the year, in Lievin, France.
The Russian dominated Tuesday’s meet, finishing 10 centimeters ahead of Cuba’s Yarisley Silva, who set a new national record. Third place went to France’s Vanessa Boslak, who cleared 4.52 meters.
Isinbayeva failed in three attempts at a season’s best height of 4.91 meters once she was sure of the IAAF Grand Prix title. She holds the indoor word record of five meters and the outdoor record of 5.06 meters, both set in 2009.
Jennifer Suhr of the United States set this year’s leading jump of 4.88 meters in Boston on February 4, trailed by Briton Holly Bleasdale who jumped a centimeter shy of that in Villeurbanne, France, last month.
Isinbayeva, 29, won gold at both the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games, as well as three world titles. She has recorded only rare successes over the last two years, winning one Diamond League meeting, but finishing outside the medals at the 2010 and 2011 world championships.
She won meets in Volgograd and Bydgoszcz, Poland, earlier this year, and skipped a meet in Donetsk.
Peter Morse, Crewe Chronicle
HOLLY Bleasdale warned her rivals she was jumping within herself when she eased to victory at the Indoor UK Trials and Championships in Sheffield on Sunday.
The Crewe student has already signalled her intention to take the pole vault world by storm this year by going to third on the all-time indoor rankings with a leap of 4.87m in France recently.
That leap all-but secured her spot on the plane to Turkey for March’s World Indoor Championships.
But it didn’t stop the 20-year-old churning out another impressive jump on her way to claiming the national title.
Holly won with a vault of 4.70m and claimed there is much more in the tank.
She said: “I was really pleased with my performance.
“I just want consistency in my competitions so to jump a 4.70m is really pleasing. Continue reading

LIEVIN, France — Fast in Arkansas, faster in France.
Lerone Clarke set the world-leading time for 60 meters in Fayetteville over the weekend. The Jamaican then crossed the Atlantic and shaved 0.02 seconds off that time to win in 6.50, beating Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre.
Yelena Isinbayeva won the pole vault in 15 feet, 9¼ inches and was followed by Cuba’s Yarisley Silva (15-5½). The Russian missed three times at 16-1¼, which would have been a world record. Jenny Suhr holds the mark at 16-0.
“It was a very good jump, a good performance,” Isinbayeva said. “My shape is getting better and better.”
But at this stage in an Olympic year, only victories count, and it followed on the heels of two wins in Eastern Europe. “Step by step, I am trying to improve myself.”
She will be going for her third straight gold at the Olympics and after two years of bad results, she feels she is getting back to her peak.
The men and women of the Brockport track and field team traveled to Ithaca, N.Y. to take part in the Robert Kane Invitational Saturday, Feb. 11 at Cornell University. It was a weekend of unbelievable performances for several Golden Eagles competitors attempting to re-write the college record books.
Junior pole vaulter Zach Ferrara continues to dominate on his path to the upcoming Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) tournament. Ferrara beat a star-studded field of vaulters by clearing a height of 16 feet 1 inch, edging out his longtime rival Ryan Pericozzi of Cortland.
The two competitors were even at a height of 15 feet 9 inches, so the bar was moved up to 16 feet 1 inch. Ferrara made the jump on his first try, but Pericozzi failed to do so in three attempts, making Ferrara the victor. Continue reading
