Watch Allison Stokke Put On A Pole Vaulting Show For GoPro [Video]

“Technically, there’s no limit as to how high the bar can go. So it gets you pretty hyped.”

This is INSANE.

If you’re like most people, you’ve likely watched a collective 90 seconds of pole vaulting in your life. Change that.

GoPro recently released a ridiculous commercial for their new, completely badass Hero4 camera featuring pole vaulter Allison Stokke. After pole vaulting for U Cal in 2011 and barely missing the 2012 London Olympics, Stokke’s gunning to be one of the headliners—and elite bodies—for Team USA in Rio in 2016.

The clip shows a live pole vault attempt from a sick first-person PoV angle, something that’s rarely filmed, if at all. Hopefully you don’t hate heights, because the video is just a little bit stomach-curdling.

I firmly agree with Allison — pole vaulters are completely crazy.

 

It definitely gives you massive respect for the sick athleticism and fearlessness that goes into the sport. Oh, and apparently launching yourself off a massive pole is a killer core workout. That six-pack, though.

Maybe we should all get involved recreationally.
