Regarding starting blocks on vault, it only makes sense if you can keep. Accelerating all the way down the runway. With sprinting, it\’s important to be fast over the whole length of race, where with vaulting it\’s about the speed at the end so for most people it wouldn\’t make sense I think. So a better comparison would be to look at pole vaulters. Remember Gina Gogean\’s run up? She was very casual at the start but then picks up speed in the last 5m before the board. Exactly like a pole vaulter
