As March dawns upon us, it’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter into the year 2023. With the indoor season drawing to a close for the professionals and the college athletes, many high school pole vaulters are gearing up for competitions throughout the month.
In this edition, we proudly feature Katie Moon, an Olympic Gold Medalist and World Medalist, on our cover. It’s evident that Katie is on a mission to break the all-time outdoor record, solidifying her position as the reigning Queen of Pole Vault.

We look forward to witnessing the impressive feats that Katie and other pole vaulters will accomplish this season.
Katie Moon, an accomplished pole vaulter whose story is nothing short of inspiring. In her own words, she credits her coach Brad Walker as her biggest influence and a pivotal figure in her journey to success.

Reflecting on her experience working with Walker, Katie states, “I looked up to him when he was a vaulter, and working with him has changed me for the better in every way – mentally, physically, technically, etc. When I started working with him, I was terrified to pole vault, and my technique would never have allowed me to jump higher than 4.60. There would be no medals to my name without him.”

It’s evident that the guidance and mentorship of her coach has played a critical role in shaping Katie’s trajectory in the world of pole vaulting. Her story serves as a testament to the importance of having a strong support system and the impact that a dedicated coach can have on an athlete’s success.
Abbey has returned with another insightful article, this time exploring the concept of the calm before the storm in pole vaulting.

As pole vaulters gear up for upcoming competitions and strive to reach new heights, Abbey delves into the importance of maintaining a sense of tranquility and focus in the face of potential challenges. Her thoughtful analysis sheds light on the mental fortitude required to excel in this demanding sport.
We look forward to Abbey’s continued contributions to our publication, providing valuable insights and reflections on the world of pole vaulting.
We are thrilled to have Matt Barry, our esteemed writer, back with us as he shares his insights on the upcoming Pole Vault High School Nationals in the United States. As the event draws near, Matt highlights the intense financial competition between Nike, Adidas, and New Balance, as they vie for the rights to host a true indoor national championships.

However, there is a catch. The three indoor national meets are all scheduled to take place on the east coast, posing a conundrum for athletes hailing from states such as Washington, Texas, California, Louisiana, Alabama, or Colorado. Will they make the journey across the country to participate in the competition, or will it result in yet another “east coast” nationals, albeit held at three different locations?

Matt’s thoughtful analysis sheds light on the complex dynamics at play in the world of pole vaulting, offering valuable insights into the challenges faced by athletes as they navigate the landscape of high school pole vaulting in the United States.

We are delighted to feature “March Hare” by Daniel C. Bush, a captivating story that delves into the experiences of a young athlete and his journey through the world of coaching.

Pole vault is getting heated as we head into the indoor season for high school and college. Some pro vaulters are out getting some new marks, and the diamond league meets are underway. In June we have the NCAA outdoor meet and July we will attend the World Outdoor meet in Eugene, Oregon. This will be a busy year for the magazine and our staff of photographers and writers. We’ve solicited more writers and staff to bring articles from all over the world. Our social media presence has skyrocketed, and we appreciate all the love and support that you have all brought to our magazine.

On the cover we have a well-known high school coach out of Las Vegas, Nevada. Jimmy Gravo has dedicated so much time, energy, and effort to the sport and athletes that he loves. “Gravo likes to show new prospective vaulters how fun the sport can be when they first try it, so that they get hooked on it and come back to continue to train.” Keep it up Jimmy, your effort will not go unnoticed.

Like many countries Slovenia was hit hard by the pandemic and covid kept many athletes from doing what they love to do best. “In Slovenia, one of the countries in the Balkans, the rules of training in the hall were extremely strict, only competitors ranked among the best 2 at the national level could train in the hall.” Matic Zupan writes about the challenges that they faced and the effort that he went through to get the kids active again. Great article to learn from, thank you.

The run is where the good stuff happens, and we have an article that will help clear up the muddy waters about the run. Nick Cronenwett walks us through his understanding of this process to get the beginning vaulters to where they need to be. “The keys to a good run include building momentum from long strides to short strides, staying tall, and planting early to drive the pole towards the crossbar at take-off.” Excellent job Nick and we look forward to the next article soon.

Bob Dailey says next pole please! What it takes to get on the next pole and an article that is meant to do just that. “In a worst-case scenario, your step may be off, the plant goes poorly, the launch is compromised, and the pole might spit you back, instead of taking you into the air.” Many of you have faced the same challenges as we have moved up to the next pole. This is a fun article written years back about one man’s personal experience.

Next month will be the last cover that will feature a coach on the cover before we go to a few colleges that offer pole vault. Stay tuned as we bring you more articles, top notch images and professional pole-vaulting point of view.
