Je suis toujours impressionnée par le saut à  la perche.
Ayush Basu: This is something I have never done in my life, Martine. I too am impressed by their prowess.

A fine picture of concentration, Ayush...it seems a very in-brain sport.
Ayush Basu: He was on his warm run and eyeing up his approach, Ray.
A good portrait of the athlete!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Elizabeth.
That really does emphasise the length of the pole.
Ayush Basu: He used that pole very well, Michael.

You have to have great self belief to do this Ayush
Ayush Basu: You hit the nail on the head, Chris.

He lost Gilbert!
Ayush Basu: Actually I did, Louis smile
I have never understood why people do the pole vault!
Ayush Basu: I have asked the same thing about bungee jumping and jumping off airplanes!
One activity I never could manage to master.
Ayush Basu: I never attempted it, Brian. I had one go at high jump and that was already enough, sad to say.

I am sure those are intense moments for athletes! He looks to be in good spirits, though!

It's an amazing spectacle to watch. The pole shows just a part of what he was to jump.
Who won the games at the end?
