All Over 2

This pole vaulter seems to have a rather confident face (and indeed he did not dislodge the bar at the top) on his way down.

Wonderful shot, Ayush. A positive frame of mind seems crucial in this sport.
Ayush Basu: Especially at the leading run up, Ray.
What a great shot! He seems to be floating!
Ayush Basu: Yes, I had a bit of trouble not chopping his legs off, Elizabeth!
Nice action shot with a very good point of view.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Michael, for your encouraging comment.
Très jolie photo.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine.
A nice Peter Parker impression.
Ayush Basu: That is a refreshing way of putting it, Michael.

I think this is one of the more spectacular disciplines. Great picture and I love his confidence.
Ayush Basu: I love his confidence too and I can only imagine the hard work and the failures before the flawless technique became his habit, Astrid.
I like the look of peace and calm on his face despite his challenge Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Precisely, Chad. I can only imagine the hard work and the failures before the flawless technique became his habit.
I think the wind is helping to lift him.
Ayush Basu: The billowing shorts and singlet do emphasize that impression, Mary.
If you can believe, you are more than half way there
Ayush Basu: I think you are right, Martin. Thank you.
A strange sport the pole vault but he seems to have mastered it
Ayush Basu: The closest I got to it was to photograph it, Bill grin
His clothes are like parachutes...
Ayush Basu: Precisely, Larry. I feel somewhat risky too, just in case they get snagged on to the pole.
