Leszek Klima was a pole vaulter born in and competing for Poland in the 1970s and 1980s with a PB of 5.40m.

After leaving Poland in 1981 he found a new home in Leverkusen/Germany. Parallel to his own athletic career, he started to coach young athletes who soon achieved performances even better than his own. Over the years, World class athletes like Tim Lobinger (6m00), Danny Ecker (6m00i), Lars Boergeling (5m85), Michael Stolle (5m95) and Silke Spiegelburg (4m82) developed under his guidance. Until today, he is mentoring coaches and athletes from all over the world.

The title of Leszek’s lecture is “Developing World Class Athletes in the Pole vault – My experiences with Tim Lobinger, Danny Ecker, Michael Stolle, Anna Rogowska, Silke Spiegelburg and others“. 


As anticipation builds for our upcoming convention, we find it necessary to share a significant update regarding our speaker lineup. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen personal commitments, Scott Simpson will be unable to join us for the event.

We understand the value that each speaker brings to the convention, and we are committed to ensuring that the experience for our attendees remains exceptional. It is for this reason that we found it necessary a replacement of great caliber: Leszek Klima.
