I would not have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes.
If you search on youtube there are heaps more snapping pole-vault videos to be seen. It is good to see in slow motion like here. What is that thing that flies off, a part of the pole?

This guy lands on his pole – that’s gotta hurt (and maybe do some damage!). Pole Vaulting seems to provide most of the humor in Track and Field.
This time the tension builds as we watch them go through their paces. We then get an explanation by the coach why the pole snapped, and a good look at the injuries.
A guy named steve finds his pole slips out of the box. Good to see another variation of the pole snapping video.
The commentator actually predicted that this would happen. Maybe he knew that the pole was old and Dan would push it too far.
