Steve Hooker Pole Vault Team Challenge:

Rules

The ladies and gentlemen’s competitions will occur simultaneously, but in the separate pits on the D (ladies on the outside runway).

The winning pair is decided by adding each couple’s best heights.

The jump off start height will be the last height missed by the nominated vaulters.

Starting Heights

Ladies, 3.00, 3.21, 3.36, 3.51, 3.66, 3.81, 3.96, 4.11, 4.26, 4.41, 4.56, 4.71 etc…

Gentlemen, 4.00, 4.26, 4.41, 4.56, 4.71, 4.86, 5.01, 5.16, 5.31, 5.46, etc…
