It’s December and wow, it came extremely quickly once again. It seems that I’m saying this a little too often. It’s the best time of the year if you ask us, we love the holiday season for all the Christmas Cheer. Every year it seems that Christmas and our Candy Cane meet is the staple of our club and magazine. Such a fun event with friends and family around sharing Christmas joy. You can’t ask for more as we add the wonderful sport of pole vault right in the middle of it all. If you get a chance to come and join us, I would do just that. We will see you all at the 2022 EXPO Explosion meet in Texas. Come and join us for the fun.


What a cool cover by the United States Naval Academy with all the Christmas spirit around this amazing team. Once again, they make the whole process so flawless with their enthusiasm and professionalism. But there’s more to this amazing team then what meets the eye. “Rory Quiller spearheads the pole vault squad at the Naval Academy, located in Annapolis, Maryland. The U.S Naval Academy is a federal service academy, and the athletes on the Navy track and field squad are held to high standards of achievement that look a little different than the usual college athletic experience.” What else can you say, this is a top-notch institution for military pole vaulting. Thank you for taking the time to bless us with your knowledge and insight. Sara knocked it out of the park with this article, thank you!


When I read the article from Daniel Bush each month, I get quite the chuckle with what he provides. Not only very well written and professionally done, but it’s also fun to follow along one month after another. ““He’s a stickler, dat Steve Stickler, ya?” I said.  “Lucky, he gave grace.” Arriving at the source of a traffic jam, a car had its hazard lights on as two men pushed it from behind.  “Hey, isn’t that Stickler?” Chuck asked, placing his gold medal on the dash.  “And he’s got Barlove with him.” Always wrapped in family values, hard work and discipline and we love that about his stories. “


Goals are a very efficient way to get through most aspects of life to include pole vault. If it’s New Years’, state championships, or league finals, it is good to set some short- and long-term goals that will help you navigate through the process of pole vault. Abbey sends in a sweet article how she sets her goals and the importance of doing so. Great read! “So, in short, my goal was to work so hard that I would accomplish my dreams.”


January 1, 2023 is right upon us and we will have the coast guard on the cover for the new year. Stay tuned for that edition, it will be a good one.

The Olympics are over, now what? Well, in 2022 we have Worlds, and that event will be here before you know it. Olympic coverage is all the news for last month and just like much of the news that happens around the world, it is here and gone just like that. In this issue of Vaulter Magazine, we have a cover that makes collectors go crazy. All the Olympians on one cover that earned a medal. We have two articles this month, one for men and one for women from Sara. We also have an amazing book review by Matt about the Violent Ballet.

A load of changes for the men’s line up affected the results and the competition. “The COVID-19 pandemic switched up the look of the men’s field for the pole vault, introducing new obstacles in the same way it has been doing for the past year.” On the lady’s side there was a quite a battle to the very end. “The field included 2016’s Olympic Champion Katerina Stefanidi from Greece, the 2019 World Champion Anzhelika Sidorova competing for the Russian Olympic Committee, the seven-time British Champion Holly Bradshaw, and American Katie Nageotte who has been putting up world leading marks this year, among many other competitive vaulters.” Sara has two amazing articles and they’re fun to read.

Matt Barry writes about his all time favorite pole vault book and he leaves no stone unturned. “The text I consider the “New Testament” of the pole vault, second to Alan Launder’s, Beginner to Bubka: And Isanbayeva, too, which I call the “Old Testament”, is Dave Butler’s The Pole Vault: A Violent Ballet.Our athletes at Pole Vault Atlanta and those I come in contact with across the country laugh when I make that comparison of the books, however many are now intrigued as to what exactly is in Dave Butler’s book. “ I’ve started reading the book and I’m very impressed with the knowledge that is presented within the pages. Fun, informative, and easy to understand.

The office of Vaulter Magazine is nonstop, and we have so many new and exciting projects currently under our belt. We’ve dived into the world of YouTube with historical video’s Top 10 videos, camps, meet promotion and development, and that is just to name a few. Next month, we have a surprise coach that is beloved and cherished in his community.
