Hi All,


A colleague and I were looking for some footage of the Fosbury
flop (I hope we have that name right!) which is a way that pole
vaulters can pass over a high bar yet their center of mass passes under
the bar. Has anyone out there seen such footage? Any leads on how I
could get a copy? We've done a bit of web searchign with no luck.
