I have a chance at doing something great’
Missouri–As a seventh-grader, Vera Neuenswander was watching when the United States’ Stacy Dragila won the first Olympic gold medal in the women’s pole vault in 2000 at Sydney, Australia.
“I was hooked from that moment,” Vera said. “Lucky for me, I was going into my … first year for track and field. “I thought, ‘Pole vault, here I come!’”
Now a graduate and All-American from the University of Indiana, Neuenswander hopes that Olympic experience will be hers at the August London games. Ranked 12th in the nation currently, Neuenswander has postponed her education career to adequately prepare for the USA National Championships in June in Eugene, Ore., which will decide the three female pole vaulters to represent the country at the 2012 Olympics.
To get there, she hopes to have help from her hometown. This winter, she sent a letter to her long-time supporters updating them on her training and asking for both prayers and financial support.
“Vera is a great example of what talent, hard work and effort can do,” said Dennis Licklider, her Jefferson City High School coach
Renaud Lavillenie became the 2012 world leader in the Pole Vault with a 5.93m clearance in Nevers, France, on Saturday (18) evening, while the same day in Val-de-Reuil, Christophe Lemaitre won the 60m in 6.59 to highlight a weekend streak of French meetings. On Thursday (16), Jamaican Patricia Hall ran 22.88 at 200m in Eaubonne, another world-leading mark.
Lavillenie bounces back from sub-par outing in Liévin
Lavillenie left Liévin earlier in the week with a fifth place finish with 5.52m, a sub-par performance he explained by the tiring travel to Donetsk, Ukraine, last weekend where he opened his season in a fine manner with 5.82m. Fully recovered and back in shape, the European Champion entered the Pole Vault meeting organised in Nevers with high ambitions. As an indication, he used poles bigger than he ever tried, and this paid off has he cleared 5.82m, and 5.93m at his first attempt with a considerable margin over the bar. Lavillenie then asked for 6.05m, two centimetres over his national record. He missed three times, but was plainly satisfied.
“I noticed from the beginning of the competition that I was able to jump 5.80m or more, and my first jumps were very easy.” The track runway limited his number of strides from 20 to 18 during the run-up.
“I didn’t know how I would adapt to it, but the result was obviously very good.”
FORT BENNING, Ga. — Wherever Megan Clark has gone during her high school years, she has set the bar high.
Her father, Col. Ron Clark, commander of the 192nd Infantry Brigade, said Megan was an all-state athlete as a sophomore at O’Neill High School in Highland Falls, N.Y., and a National Scholastic Sports Foundation track and field All-American as a junior before coming to Columbus High School in August.
Megan, a senior who is preparing for her first year with the CHS track and field team, officially signed with Duke on a track and field scholarship Wednesday at the high school. Continue reading
The 2012 men’s pole vault world-lead changed hands twice in barely an hour on Saturday as first Germany’s Björn Otto and then France’s 2010 European Athletics gold medallist Renaud Lavillenie did battle across a border and improved on the yearly mark in separate meetings.
The 34-year-old Otto, the 2007 European Athletics Indoor Championships bronze medallist, which was also the year when he cleared his previous best of 5.90m indoors and outdoors, went over a life time best of 5.92m at the special pole vault meeting in Potsdam.
The clearance moved Otto up to ninth on the European indoor all-time list.
After going over 5.72m with his second attempt, 5.82m first time and then his new personal best with his second attempt, Otto unsuccessfully tried for a German indoor record of 6.01m. Continue reading
BLACKSBURG, Va. – Freshman pole vaulter Victoria von Eynatten became the third Hokie to automatically qualify for the 2012 NCAA Indoor Championship as the Virginia Tech men’s and women’s indoor track & field squads competed on the second and final day of Virginia Tech Challenge at Rector Field House Saturday. Sophomore Frances Dowd (1000 meters), redshirt senior Ryan Witt (1000 meters) and sophomore Madalyn Nuckols (mile) also earned victories.
“This was a good tune up meet for the ACC Indoor Championships next week,” said Tech director of track & field and cross country Dave Cianelli. “I feel like we’re healthy and prepared to compete next week in Boston.”
von Eynatten won the pole vault with a season-best height of 14 feet, four inches (4.37m). Her mark also reset her own school record, set earlier this season, and ranks tied for third in NCAA Division I entering the weekend. She joins All-American men’s weight throwers Marcel Lomnicky and Alexander Ziegler as the Hokies who have qualified for the NCAA Indoor Championship to be held on March 9-10 in Nampa, Idaho.
In addition, freshman Martina Schultze finished third in the pole vault with a season best clearance of 13-10.5 (4.23m) and redshirt sophomore.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – Harding University junior Tiffany Chambers broke her own school record in the indoor pole vault on Friday at the SEMO Redhawks Invitational.
Chambers, a native of Rogers, Ark., cleared 11 feet, 6.25 inches to break her previous mark of 11-05.75, set earlier this season at the ASTATE Invitational in Jonesboro, Ark.
Chambers missed at 12 feet, a height that would have guaranteed a spot at the NCAA II Indoor National Meet. She currently ranks 25th in Division II with the top 18-20 receiving invitations for nationals.
