"Back in the day..."

Welcome to My Pole Vault Site

"The Insanity Continues"


So, what's happening here?


My name is Roger Olander, I'm an old time vaulter from the 60's who has finally given in to the allure of the world of Master's Track and Field.  I'll record my efforts and progress here as I endeavor to get in shape to compete in local, and hopefully, national competition.  I look forward to meeting and hearing from other master's vaulters as this adventure unfolds.


Unfortunately I have come to face the realization that returning to track and field as a master will not work out for me.
