To whom it may concern,

RE: Women's Pole Vaulting During the past several years I have been very impressed with the development of women's pole vaulting. Since its first beginnings in the early 90's women have demonstrated a unique ability to participate in this highly rewarding and challenging sport. It has been wonderful to see so many women take up this sport for which they are genuinely suited. The addition of women into the sport has made the over-all sport of pole vaulting better for a number of very important reasons. First and foremost, it gives opportunity for women to participate in a fun and highly rewarding sport. Secondly, it makes the sport of pole vaulting safer (since women are far less likely to have vaulting accidents and their male counter parts). Third, it more fully utilizes facilities and equipment. forth, it will ultimately double the number of potential vaulting coaches nationwide. In my mind, women's pole vaulting is perhaps the most important thing to come along since the fiberglass pole and the foam rubber landing pit.
