Video: US athlete Allison Stokke and GoPro show us what it’s like to pole vault

“It’s so frustrating, but I think that’s what makes it so fun…”

That’s just one of the many things pole vaulter Alison Stokke has to say about her chosen sport of pole vaulting in this video from GoPro.

She also said that pole vaulters are “a little crazy”. Her words, not ours...

The 25-year-old from Newport, California, recently decided to strap one of the miniature action cameras to her trusty pole to give us non-vaulting folk a first-person view of what the sport is like.

We just hope you’re not afraid of heights.
