Best Answer

pole vaulting poles can break but its how it breaks that truly shows if the pole was used effectively or ineffectively

1. poles will break if a persons using the pole weighs much heavier than the weight designated on the pole and applies to much stress or improper stress

2. pole vaulters should use a pole at or around their weight and never under their weight.

3. poles that were used properly but are broken, tend to break in two pieces.

4. if a pole snaps in more than two pieces, that pole would have most likely been under the weight of the athlete and or been used improperly by the athlete.

5. play it safe and use a pole that is designated for your weight and use proper techniques when bending the pole and vaulting into the pit

6. another way to insure proper pole usage is to make sure pole is not dented or fractured in any places... poles may break due to pre-existing wear and tear... CHECK ALL POLES BEFORE PRACTICE AND USE!!!
