SAI pole vault centre in New Delhi in a shambles

New Delhi, April 1 (IANS) The pole vault setup at the showpiece Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium is in a shambles. A mat borrowed from high jump currently makes up for a proper landing pit. The poor condition of the infrastructure could cause serious injuries to athletes, but no one seems to have noticed the shortcoming.

The National Centre of Excellence (NOCE) for pole vault was setup at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in November 2018 with an aim to groom youngsters in the age group of 15 to 18 years for the 2024 and the 2028 Olympics.
