Re: New reason to watch pole vaulting
So speaking of pole vaulting - I have a friend whose son is a vaulter. Rather good, actually. Anyway, he was practicing earlier this week and as he released the pole at the top of his vault, the wind caught it and blew it back towards him. He's at 17+ feet and the top of the pole started to impale him around the lower stomach, upper groin area. He and the pole fell as one.
Luckily no vital organs were damaged, but he has a nasty wound.
Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
