Speed parameters in female pole vault

Peter Krska, Andre Hubinak, Jaromir Sedlacek



The speed parameters in pole vault of females were analysed. Research subject population was formed by pole vault females with personal best performances from 380 to 483 cm.Female vaulters of higher performance level reach also higher centre of gravity horizontal speed at the end of take-off and by more effective transition on pole they lose less of this speed like vaulters of lower performance level.It was found that differences in vertical centre of gravity speed at finishing in phases of swing up with turn and extension show better movement activity on pole of female vaulters with the higher performance level.
