Robert "Bob" Pullard was the first Black Pole Vaulter to clear 18'00." Ironically the first three Black Pole Vaulters to clear 18'00" all competed for the University of Southern California (USC) a university with a long and storied history in the pole vault with 5 Olympic Medalists in the event. Pullard worked as an officer for the Los Angeles Police Department, until his death in the late 80's.
There are many poles rated for a 200 lbs vaulter. First a vaulter of that size must work on their technique to ensure that he can use such a large pole. Then depending on the vaulters height and jump a vaulter can buy a 14' - 17' 7" that is rated for a 200 lbs vaulter. But a 14' 200 is not the same pole as a 16' 200. Please look up a pole size chart before picking the right size pole.

The Arabian was the first horse to jump seven feet in equine history.
The way to jump 20 feet it to first practice on a trampoline about 9 times every day then after a week or so mentally visualize you jumping on the trampoline and actually jump up then you can jump up 20 feet in the air!
29.10 feet by a black man from africa i think
jump never dive, you don't know how deep it is
I would definitely go feet first after checking to see how deep the water is first. Then jump away to clear the side and let gravity do the rest. I would blindfold myself, then think of the person i like, then jump
Increased velocity results in ease of upward movement after last stride giving an ease of movement to the vaulter and therefore higher jump.
They can jump up to 9 feet (2.75m) in one jump!
he jump 20 human feet
yes! They can jump to 25-30 feet
