is a Russian pole vaulter.
She is a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist (2004 and 2008), was elected Female Athlete of the Year by the IAAF twice (2004 and 2005),
and Sportswoman of the Year by Laureus. On July 22, 2005, she became the first female pole vaulter to clear 5.00 metres.
Could you tell us about her secret
? What does Elena whisper to the pole before each vault?
In my time, I also wanted to know that. Then I understood, it was no good idea. It’s not necessary to publish those words, so important for her. Otherwise, she might lose her faith in it. Anyway, those words help her getting ready.
