    Pole Vault world record beaten by Frenchman



    http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/athletics/26208821

    Sergey Bubka's pole vault record broken by Renaud Lavillenie

    Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie has broken Sergey Bubka's 21-year-old pole vault world record with a 6.16m leap in the Ukrainian's home city of Donetsk.

    The Frenchman, 27, cleared the height on his first attempt to go one centimetre higher than the record Bubka set indoors in February 1993.

    Former Olympic champion Bubka also held the world outdoor record of 6.14m, achieved in Italy in 1994.

    Marks set indoors or out are accepted as world records in the pole vault.

    Lavillenie wrote on Twitter: "World record! 6.16 at my first attempt! That's incredible. I'm still in the air."

    Bubka was a pioneer of the sport, becoming the first man to clear 6.00m, and was in Donetsk to witness Lavillenie eclipse his record.

    The six-time outdoor world champion broke the men's pole vault world record 35 times during his career, 17 times outdoors and 18 indoors.

    Bubka walked onto the track to congratulate Lavillenie and later said: "That's fantastic. It's history and I'm very happy that Renaud does it here, in Donetsk, my town.

    "I'm happy because my job is to help athletes perform. Athletics is my life. I'm pleased for him and for athletics."

    Lavillenie, whose best outdoors is 6.02m, described his achievement as "completely unbelivable".

    He told French news channel BFM TV: "I will need time to get back down on earth. It was a mythical record. I knew I had the potential to try it but [to] beat it so early, that's something else.

    "I did not know what was happening to me. The sound was crazy. These are huge emotions. I am in a new dimension."

    Luke Cutts' fine start to the season continued as the British record holder cleared 5.81m to finish second in Ukraine.

    How the indoor pole vault world record has progressed

    Cool. I always wanted to try pole vaulting. It looks fun.



    Well fun unless you hit the end of the pole with your nuts.

    On a side note, French Ice Dancer Nathalie Péchalat sure does makes my pole rise to the occasion.

    Women's pole vault competititions are quite interesting...

    They set to it a good dozen years ago. They jump lower bars, but they can ride poles all right.

    Some postures are damn cool anyway.









    But they're used to handling a certain pole size so that it can be but a little too intimidating before appoaching them.

    I'd be happy with the back side, even if the front was terrible.

    Dunno if she is the same jumper, but she may turn round too anyway.



    This one seems to have a little trouble handling that pole...



    Here's a bit better:



    This sport isn't only physical, it needs some cuntcentration too :

    A reporter meets a man carrying an eight-foot-long metal stick and asks, “Are you a pole vaulter?”
    “No,” says the man, “I’m German. But how did you know my name is Walter?
