Athletes are required to enter their season’s best jumps when registering for this event.

Steve Hooker Pole Vault Team Challenge

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. There will be no count back, so in the event of a tie, a jump off will occur in the usual way, but each pair will nominate one vaulter to take part (either the lady or the gentleman). The jump off start height will be the last height missed by the nominated vaulters.

Start Heights

Around 3.20 for the ladies and 4.20 for the gentlemen.

Start List

Once the start lists are finalised, the highest ranked lady will be paired with lowest ranked Gentlemen, etc… Generally the 2018 ranking lists will be used to rank the vaulters.

 As each couple needs to wear the same colour outfit; so you need to contact your partner to discuss attire. This is not fancy dress (it is a serious competition named after Victoria’s most famous pole vaulter) but we want vaulters to look good. Once you have decided on your colour contact Mark Stewart, as we need all couples in different colours. First in best dressed.

 Past Winners

2014 Phillipa Hajdasz & Cameron Sherry with 8.20m in green.

2015 Alana Boyd & Lachlan Burns 8.37 in white.

2016 Annabelle Anderson & Max Mishchenko with 8.00m in orange.
