What started as a way to promote the sport of Track and Field and the Pole Vault, now has become the premier event for pole vaulting competitions in the United States. Many of the top pole vaulters in the world have competed here including Olympic Pole Vault Medalists Nick Hysong (Gold 2000), Stacy Dragila (Gold 2000), Tim Mack (Gold 2004), Lawrence Johnson (Silver 2000), Toby Stevenson (Silver 2004) as well as Olympians Giovanni Lanaro (Mexico), Kory Tarpenning (U.S.A.), Tim Bright (U.S.A.) and Melissa Mueller (U.S.A.). World Class Pole Vaulters, future Olympians, music, fun and fans make the North American Pole Vault Association Championships a premier event!
It is with particular pride and excitement that Old Town Clovis welcomes back the NAPVA Pole Vaulters and Coach Fraley for the 2012 Championships. This is an exciting event! Arrive early to assure your viewing space!
