Increase The Size Of Pole Vault Pits, Urges ATSM Task Force

The American Society For Testing And Materials (ASTM) has established a new task force to establish voluntary safety standards for pole vaulting. The task force is studying poles, which are made of highly breakable fiberglass, and will be recommending an increase in the size of the vaulting pit as a result of a study showing that 32 of 34 pole vaulting accidents examined could have been prevented had larger pits been used.
