The Pole Vault may be one of the most impressive events to watch in all of Track and Field.  Athletes who excel are dedicated to their craft, and have spent countless hours perfecting the techniques and skills required to contest the event.  Just weeks ago, we said Pole Vault was undergoing a revolution in NY, but to what effect?

But does that make them specialists?  IE, if you are a Pole Vaulter, is that the only event you concentrate on?  Does it take so much focus, that other events fall by the wayside?

We wanted to find out.  We took all Male and Female Pole Vaulters, and found out which other events they contested this past Indoor Season.  See which events are the most likely to "cross-over," and then see which events  you may never see a vaulter in.  Check it out below.
