GRAND RAPIDS, MI – If watching the Olympics got you hooked on track and field, more specifically on pole vaulting, have I got an event for you today.
They’re calling it the Superhero’s Pole Vault competition and it is exactly what you think it is.
Starting at 10 a.m. this morning at Rockford High School, you can watch pole vaulters of all ages compete for prizes in numerous age and gender categories.
But there’s one prize I’m most interested in. I really want to see who wins the best superhero costume award.
You see all of the competitors are being asked to dress up as their favorite superhero.
I’m expecting a lot of Spiderman, Superman, and Catwoman. I’m curious if anyone will go for the Incredible Hulk. I can’t imagine that guy getting much lift.
Sponsored by KP Athletics, more information can be found at www.grandhavenbeachvault.com.
It’s just one of those off the wall events you might not have heard about and will want to check out. Besides Superman, who can fly, which of the Superheroes would have the most unfair advantage? Maybe we’ll find out today.
