It is hard to believe that it has now been two years since our first issue! We have had so much fun getting to know all the vaulters, coaches and programs we have featured that the time just flew by! We hope you, our readers, have had just as much fun with this journey as we have. In this two-year-anniversary edition, we have many more exciting stories to share with you.
Of course Vaulter Magazine would not be the same without some input from Bubba Sparks. This month he has laid out some sound advice on the approach run. He knows how frustrating it can be when the approach is not right, and he wants to help those who need it in getting a handle on it. If this seems like it is for you, we hope you will read and improve.
Penny Hanson has, yet again, brought us even more important college information this month as well. This time she is interested in speaking to multi-sport athletes who need help deciding what to do about college. This is a dilemma that does not get much attention, so it is wonderful that she is shedding some light on the issue. It is hard enough making college decisions when you are involved in one sport, let alone two. We hope this article will help ease your mind if this is the spot you find yourself in. Read up! We hope it helps.
A treat this month is our feature on an Australian artist named Phillip Carrero. Carrero is a master painter with works displayed in the Olympics Athletic Centre in Sydney. He is known for his paintings of athletes. It is very inspiring what he is able to create. Make sure to read all about him and find a way to take a look at his work. You won’t be disappointed.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) is our featured college this month. Coach T.J. Pierce and his crew have brought their team to great heights and look for only the strongest competitors. Don’t miss it!
Our featured high school, and cover feature, this March is Canyon High School of Santa Clarita, California. This vaulting program is as unique as the area where it is located. Coach Frank Rock has created something great there with a great support system. You will surely be inspired by the team. Enjoy!
Thank you, as always, for sticking with us this long. We hope to keep bringing you the best scoops and bits of information there are in the world of vaulting. Here is to another two years, and we hope you will reach that mark with us as our much-appreciated readers.
