How It’s Made recently produced a super-cool video segment showing how fiberglass vaulting poles are manufactured at Gill Athletics, the largest producer of track and field equipment in the world, including poles like the one used by heroine Maggie Steele in the new teen sports novel, Maggie Vaults Over the Moon.
It’s no accident that the cover of Maggie Vaults Over the Moon depicts the daring athlete soaring skyward on a lime green Skypole. “We wanted the vaulting segments to be as realistic as possible,” said author Grant Overstake. “So it was a must for Maggie to use a Skypole to pursue the vault of her dreams.”
Gill Athletics was delighted to see a wholesome character like Maggie soaring on a Skypole, because it’s the go-to pole for real-life champions, too.
“Gill Athletics is proud to play even a small role in the telling of Maggie’s story,” said Mike Cunningham, National Sales Manager. “The ‘Mean Green’ Skypole has become one of the most popular vaulting poles in high school history; so it is special to see it recognized on the cover of a special book such as Maggie Vaults Over The Moon!”
