The pole vault competition has been part of the Olympic program since 1896 for men and since 2000 for women. The study of this sport has been going on for more than 100 years.
The research purpose is to give a brief overview of publications, concerning the training of pole vaulters to date.
Methods and organization of the research: systematic search and analysis of information in the Google Academy database.
The results of the study. The main directions of raising problems in this topic were identified. A number of issues that the authors touch upon in addition to the main topic of the work are considered. We have come to the conclusion that three areas of development are the most explicit. In addition, researchers often consider the male and female pole vault technique separately. The age contingent also ranges from novice jumpers to the most experienced athletes over thirty years old. The methodological basis for the analysis is continually expanding. To track the dynamics of technical readiness, increasingly new and technologically advanced motion capture and analysis systems, such as Dartfish, Optojump Next and others, are used.
Conclusion. The results of the work have effective application in national track and field teams, which makes it possible to predict the level of leaders in this competitive discipline and to conduct training according to gender, age and regional specificities. Despite an expanding methodological base of research, a number of topics remain uncovered, which creates a space for discussion, in particular, in the direction of research on the physiological and psychological aspects of training and their interrelationship.
