“Stabhochsprung Projekt 6m!”

The following video about German pole vaulters Tim Lobinger, Fabian Schulze and Malte Mohr makes me miss having a training group! Being around dedicated individuals who share the same passion does wonders for one’s game. Now that I’m training solo (and since it’s UAAP time again!), it makes me appreciate the time I spent with my college training buddies.

The vaulting trio is a formidable combination. The elder statesman is 38-year old Lobinger, the 2006 World Indoor silver medalist. In his career, Lobinger had twice cleared 6.00m (in 1997 and 1999). Schulze has yet to win his first major international medal, but his personal best of 5.81m ranks him seventh at the all-time German list. Mohr had a breakout 2010 season, where the 24-year old finished second at the 2010 World Indoor Championships in Doha, behind Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie.
