It’s considered one of the most technically demanding track and field events. Not without reason.

Propelling yourself over a bar that’s usually around 20 feet high, using a tall stick is a skill that even elite athletes will find daunting. Now add to that the fact to maximise the height of your jump you need to take flight with your feet pointing skywards, and pole vaulting becomes a skill only a select set of people can execute.
