2012 Olympic Fever Spurs Media Coverage.

While the excitement over the Summer Olympics and the USA Track and Field Team was in full swing, we were contacted by VAULTER Magazine, and The Lexington Chronicle to do articles on us. As well as contacted by WACH Fox TV 57's Derrick Phillips, and WIS NBC TV 10's Hannah Horne, to do featured segments. To read the articles and view the news clips,  CLICK HERE.



Welcome to Shealy Athletics!  We are the home of Rusty Shealy Pole Vault, "The Unfair Advantage" for pole vaulters who want to be the best they can be.  We also specialize in the sale and leasing of track and field equipment, and would love the opportunity to bid on your team needs.  Please contact us at 803-315-5998, or by email 




We need to be conscientious and cautious during this difficult time for our country and the world.  Please do your part to keep everyone as safe as possible.  We are outdoors so low risk.  Here are our guidelines to follow to keep the risk as low as possible:

1. If you or your family spend time around elderly or people with a weakened immune system we encourage you to stay home. Even though the risk here is lower due to being outdoors you could pick up the virus from elsewhere (like a gas pump). Please do not take the chance of infecting someone for whom the virus could prove deadly.

2. If you have a cough or fever please stay away.  We will not hesitate to ask you to leave.

3. Practice social distancing.  Keep some distance between yourself and others. Everyone is very social so this will be difficult, but it is important. 

Thank you for your help!

Pole Sales and Leasing.

When purchasing a new pole, and with budgets so tight, we ask the right questions to make sure you get the correct size pole the first time.  Pole leasing is also an affordable option as well. The biggest benefit and budget saver when leasing is that you can trade poles for other sizes as vaulters improve their skills, saving hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Contact Rusty for more information, (803) 315-5998.


Congratulations 2019 State Champions!

Six of our Pole Vault Clinic athletes won SCHS State Championships, and one won GAHS State Championship, in 2019. This brings our total to one hundred and five SCHS State Champions and a handful of NCHS and GAHS State Champions since 1998. Congratulation State Champions!!!

Also, congratulations to all of our vaulters on a great high school season with many personal bests and school records. And a very special thank you to the many coaches that allow us to tag team coach their athletes, as well as the wonderful parents. Without the supportive parents none of this would be possible. Together we are making a difference.  Thank you!
