Abstract

Take-off skills in the pole vault are very important to the total performance, and incorrect take-off technique will greatly affect the energy transition and the work on the pole. The movements on the pole directly determine the effect of bar clearance. The aim of this study was to improve the women's pole vaulting technique, using biomechanical analysis on these phases.
