Coach Brian Elmore is a long-standing pillar in the pole vault community. He served as a coach of the Austin Striders from ’91-’94. Brian then founded Lone Star Pole Vaulting in ’97 and went on to produce 5 UIL State Champions, 1 UIL record holder, 2 USATF Junior Olympic Champions, and 6 AAU Junior Olympic Champions. Those of us who have competed at the NCAA level know Brian as a Texas Track and Field official. He has officiated the Texas Relays for the past 24 years. We are both fortunate and excited to have Brian Elmore as a coach here at Austin Pole Vault and Throws.
