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.
