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.

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.

May is that time of the year when your anxiety starts to grow for the end of school and start of summer. Summer meets, summer fun to include the sport of pole vaulting. From this year on May, we will begin our annual month of Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement awardees for the magazine.

With that said, we had a Vaulter Magazine Hall of Fame celebration for Don Hood and Carl Erickson at Baylor University for this occasion. The event was epic with the awards given to each of the recipients by Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist Jenn Suhr at Baylor University. Friends and family gathered to see these men that provided such prestige to their athletes in their younger years. Pole vaulters from the past came to mark this celebration and Stuart Kantor wrote and excellent article annotating the event.

“Says Payne of the Golden Age at Baylor: “The combination of coaching and those three guys [Hodge, Cooper, Shafe] is kind of what got me going.” Payne, mentored by Erickson, set and still holds many Baylor records. “

A great friend of Vaulter Magazine a supporter from day one and a confidante that can be counted on. “While many elite vaulters begin to coach in place of competing when they retire, few are lucky enough to make as much of an impact on the pole vaulting community as Bob Olsen.” Bob Olsen is a Masters Vaulter now and has vaulted his way through a majority of his life. Kreager Taber takes the time to write about Bob and open a window into his life as a pole vaulter and a coach. Good job Kreager!

John Clark is back, and he never ceases to make us laugh and think about his journey as a Masters Pole Vaulter. “When I woke up around 8 o’clock that Sunday morning to the sounds of howling wind, booming thunder, and pouring rain outside my hotel room, I pretty much knew the Texas Senior Games vaulting competition was going to be a wash-out.” Read the rest of the story and see what John is up to and who he is writing about this month.

As we finish may and honor those pole vaulters of the past, we will get some insight into the club world and the pole vaulters that make the summer season happen. See you all in June!
