Three-dimensional analysis of the angular momentum of a pole-vaulter.


A method to determine the three orthogonal components of the angular momentum of a human body about its center of gravity is applied to the pole-vault. The angular momentum and the pole force are used in the analysis of pole-vaulting and are also compared with Gros's data (1982, Ph.D. thesis, University of Alberta) and Hubbard and Barlow's results (1980… (More)
