(NOTE: These files are about 1MB. A high speed internet connection is highly recommended for viewing. Either that or sufficient patience.)

If you do have a high speed connection, and want to see some excellent videos of world class vaulters, check out this link. The videos on this site are even larger (take more time to download) and require the QuickTime movie viewer. If you don't have it, you can download the free viewer here.

Here is a photo I like and have titled "It's lonely at the top."  Read the bio of this vaulter, Lawrence Johnson.

You can save any of these files to your own computer so they can be accessed without being connected to the web. To do this, select File, then SaveAs from the Windows Media Player menu bar and give the file a name and directory of your choosing. Be sure to keep the .avi filename extension.
