I am a long jumper, can I learn the pole vault?

Jumps Are All Running Jumps

If you've ever high jumped, long jumped, or triple jumped, you know that the approach sets up the entire jump. Whether an athlete has a successful jump is almost always determined by the approach. The same is true for the pole vault. You cannot have a good plant and everything thereafter if you're approach is wrong. Get consistent.
