How to pole vault: Fossil Ridge’s Chloë Woest shows us

 

 

 

Ever watched someone pole vault and wondered how that person flings themselves through the air using a stick?

We did. And thankfully, one of the best pole vaulters in Colorado, Chloë Woest, lives in Fort Collins and was willing to show us how it works.

Woest, a senior at Fossil Ridge High School who finished second at the Class 5A state track meet a year ago and is the favorite to win the pole vaulting title this week, allowed us to attach a couple of GoPros to her to help explain the process of launching yourself 12 feet in the air. Watch the video above to see a first-person view of what it’s like to pole vault and learn how it works.
