Editor’s Note: Nurturing Excellence in Pole Vaulting

In this edition, we explore the vibrant world of pole vaulting, particularly focusing on the distinguished program at the University of Kansas (KU). Doug Bouma takes us on a comprehensive journey, unveiling the rich tapestry of history, talent, and camaraderie that defines this exhilarating discipline.

Unveiling the Dynamics of Pole Vaulting at Kansas University: A Comprehensive Insight by Doug Bouma delves into the intricate workings of KU’s pole vaulting program. From the foundational elements embodied by the university’s emblematic mascot, the Jayhawk, to the coaching legacy of stalwart Tom Hays, Bouma paints a vivid picture of excellence and dedication. The program’s commitment to unity, recruitment standards, and state-of-the-art equipment further solidifies its position among the nation’s elite.

Draining Lactic Acid: Effective Strategies for Pole Vaulters sheds light on a common challenge faced by pole vaulters – lactic acid build-up. Bouma presents practical techniques, from low-intensity exercise to massage therapy, offering invaluable insights to enhance recovery and performance.

In Hydration and the Sport of Pole Vault, Bouma underscores the critical importance of hydration for pole vaulters’ strength, endurance, and overall well-being. By emphasizing the detrimental effects of dehydration and providing actionable hydration guidelines, this article serves as a vital resource for athletes striving for peak performance.

As we navigate the realms of athleticism, recovery, and optimal performance, our meticulous exploration offers a compelling narrative of dedication, resilience, and triumph. Whether scaling new heights on the track or nurturing camaraderie off it, KU’s pole vaulting program exemplifies a legacy of excellence that continues to inspire.

What a summer 2022 has become! This issue we have the Nationals issue of Vaulter Magazine and when we say Nationals, we mean high school Nationals. We went to the Nationals in Eugene, Oregon and it was a hit with a brand new stadium that rocks! It was a long haul for our athletes, but a great experience that all serious pole vaulters should experience. We had a great time at Nationals and Worlds, but the worlds issue comes next month in September. Thank you for following along, reading our articles, and looking at our pictures. We plan to expand and expanding is what we will do.

On the cover we have Megan Kelleghan (Colorado) representing the high school nationals that we attended in Eugene, Oregon. Kellehan is coached by Pat Manson out of Colorado. We had a great time at Nationals and we wish we could go to them all, specially the Adidas Nationals, that would be fun. New Balance would be a great fit as well and for the winter. Sara knocked this article out of the park and we are thankful daily for all that she does to contribute.

Daniel Bush is back and he has a cool twist on a pole vault podcast that he wrote up. Have a read, it’s interesting and fun! ““G’day, mates.Welcome to the Pole Vault Podcast,” the Australian host crackled over the airwaves.“I’m Barry Barlove, with K4HG radio.””

Next month it is all about the first ever World Outdoor track and field meet in Eugene, Oregon. A world record was set and a Olympic Gold Medalist won the Worlds Gold. What a treat to see live and taking it all in was exciting. We will see you all next month.
