Yelena Isinbayeva Loses Stranglehold On Women’s Pole Vaulting, But That’s Not Important Right Now


What’s the deal with female pole vaulters? Sure, Yelena Isinbayeva is no Allison Stokke (few are), but there must be something about pole-vaulting that brings out the best in a woman. Maybe it’s the exercise – who knows?

In any event, Isinbayeva failed to clear any height today at the world championships, which apparently isn’t a good thing in pole vaulting.

The Russian had won all major titles since the 2004 Athens Games and saw a difficult year hit an unexpected low when the bar fell down on her at 4.80 meters.

Well, that sucks. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end for Ms. Isinbayeva or maybe it will get her to recommit herself to a more focused, stricter training regiment.

It would be a shame for that booty to go to waste. Photo evidence after the jump.



Shit, I bet she could crush walnuts with that ass.

And to be perfectly honest, she is not a homely woman, either. I believe the appropriate term to use here is “handsome,” in an Eastern European sort of way, which ain’t bad.




Not bad at all. Most of you would probably not kick her out of bed for eating crackers, as the saying goes, but that might be due to the fear of her crushing your skull between her ass cheeks, which probably wouldn’t be a bad way to go if you think about it.
