      condition that brain and the body to be on the same page. like when you almost fall and your body just kind of takes over ypou know? except in these cases its happening while the user is actively aware.
      so instead of just falling hoping your body saves you, you can fall and scan your surroundings and place yourself to fall in the best manner possible. run through the woods on a trial and you will see how everything comes on line putting you in the zone.
      just my opinion from my experiences (mostly skateboarding)

    As a pole vaulter I'm deathly afraid of the pole snapping and I've seen it happen.

    • Brandon Bartos
      Brandon Bartos Month ago +1

      The way they bend, if there's a small crack in it from falling too many times it'll snap. Poles go by weight and how long the pole is, so they usually start with a shorter pole, but it stays within your weight range, though they generally try to keep it as close as possible in order to have more bend

    • Redarcher
      Redarcher Month ago +2

      And who knows you could possibly just get a faulty pole as well but that would be extremely rare to happen.

    • Redarcher
      Redarcher Month ago +2

      And some schools just sadly don't have pole vaulting it's quit expensive. I think one pole is upwards of $500-1000

    When I ran track, they made each of us compete Ina field event. I was totally mesmerized by the pole vaulters. Then I saw a girl run up, put her pole into the pocket, bent up, and then it snapped to where she wasn't quite to the bar or mats yet. She went about 6 feet and landed flat on her back. Luckily it was a recycled rubber approach so it was cushioned a bit, but she got the wind knocked out of her like I've never seen. We ran up and her eyes looked like dinner plates. She sprang up, grabbed me and one of our coaches trying to get a breath in. She started quick shallow breaths and muttered, "did I break that pole?" We all laughed our asses off, but it was sketchy man.
