    what a very neat article, thanks for it.

    Boy we sure have lost a ton of OG'ers in the last few years and months and days, haven't we.

      Nice little bit of trivia I found in an AI obit: he was the last vaulter to win Oly gold on a bamboo pole.

          Garry, it would be interesting to know if Smith was in the minority using bamboo in 1948. How and when did metal poles take over ? Maybe our resident PV guru, oldvaulter, can provide some info on this.
