Pole Vault
Pole vaulting is an athletics event that is part of the jumping discipline. After a run-up of around fifty meters, the athlete uses a flexible pole to clear a horizontal bar several meters high without dropping it. Pole vaulting can be traced back to ancient Greece, where it was used as a means of locomotion to cross streams, hurdles or to escape wild beasts using long, rigid pieces of wood. As pole vaulting competitions multiplied in Europe and the United States, Baron Pierre de Coubertin decided to include this discipline in the first Olympic Games of the modern era, in 1896 at the Athens Games.

Monnaie de Paris
Founded in 1864, not only is Monnaie de Paris France's longest standing institution, but it is also the oldest enterprise in the world. Today, the mint strikes circulation coins for France, as well as beautiful gold and silver commemorative coin programs that are each intricately designed works of art. The mint is also home to a museum that hosts exhibitions, tours and workshops as well as the Guy Savoy Restaurant.
