they would have the pole vault, and if you didn't qualify you would then enter the "invitiational pole vault", and if you didn't qualify you would enter the "elite pole vault" all in the same meet.

If you made it, you withdrew from the competition and if you missed 3 times, you waited until everyone was done and the next section started at the same starting height.
Marks Snobs like me LOVE that! I'm also into 'real' competition, but sometimes I just wanna see what kind of mark you can put up!!!
