North Island Masters
Pole Vault

The Pole Vault is sometimes not offered as an event, depending on the facilities available at the host centre. In the Olympics, it has has been contested by men since 1896 and women from 2000.

At the North Island Champs, it has been contested since 1994 with the odd absence when the hosts did not have the facilities for the event.

The normal convention used if two or more vaulters have finished with the same height is to use the number of misses at the final height as a tie-breaker.

The standard programme developed for 2014 places the event on Friday afternoon.

Performances by guest athletes from outside the North Island are marked [IE].
