I’m not going to lie. Initially when I thought about pole vaulting it reminded me of a stunt that was thought up by the prodigies of pain known as the Jackass cast. Now after reading further into the sport, I have come to see it for the precise discipline that it really is. Which has given me a entirely new outlook and appreciation for it.
Oh yeah, and if you want to see some insane videos of pole-vaulting gone wrong, check out YouTube. The site is full of them!
Mary Sauer is a Wisconsin native, and most likely the best “cheese-head” the state has ever produced.
