Pole Vaulting Girl

Pole vaulting is track and field event in which a person uses a long, flexible pole (which today is usually made either of fiberglass or carbon fiber) as an aid to leap over a bar. Pole jumping competitions were known to the ancient Greeks, as well as the Cretans and Celts. It has been a full medal event at the Olympic Games since 1896 for men and since 2000 for women.
he so-called "6 metres club", which consists of pole vaulters who have reached at least 6 metres (19 ft 8¼ in) , is very prestigious. In 1985 Sergey Bubka became the first pole vaulter to clear 6 metres; he also holds the current outdoor world record at 6.14 metres, set on 31 July 1994 in Sestriere.
All "6 metres club" members are men. The only woman to exceed 5 metres is Russian women's world-record holder Yelena Isinbayeva, who reached that height in 2005 and who has in total broken the women's world-record,,indoor and outdoor, 27 times, culminating in her current world record of 5.06 metres obtained in 2009 at Letzigrund in Zurich.
