Pole vault

(Sport: Field Events - Pole Vault)

Definition

An event in which competitors have to vault over a high crossbar using a flexible pole as a lever. The heights are much greater than for the high jump, but the principles are the same. After successfully clearing a height without knocking the crossbar from its supports, the height is increased for the next jump.
