Pole Vaulting – Hadrian’s Wall – 2

Excerpt from the book Sports the Olympics Forgot This book describes 40 sports that ought to be played but aren’t, because I made them up.

The second event is the “Vault over the Wall” that is for both professional and amateur athletes alike. The aim here is simply to vault over the wall using any implement possible such as a garden spade, a fencepost, or even a car bumper. Not all attempts are successful; to be in with a chance of winning the athlete must clear the wall and again the furthest distance wins the prize. Competitors can have a maximum of 10 attempts in the two hours set aside for the event. All contestants sign an insurance waiver before the beginning of the event.
