Pole Vault

You don’t hear much about pole vaulting lately. That’s because the world record hasn’t changed since 1994.

The men’s world record for the pole vault is held by Sergei Bubka of Ukraine with a vault of 6.14 meters (20 feet 1-3/4 inches).

The women’s world record is held by Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia with a vault of 5.05 meters (16 feet 6-3/4 inches).

20 feet is a long way up.
