The details (from wikipedia)


Richard Spiegelburg (born 12 August 1977 in Georgsmarienhütte, Lower Saxony) is a German pole vaulter. He is the older brother of Silke Spiegelburg.


He won the 1999 Summer Universiade and finished fourth at the 2000 European Indoor Athletics Championships. He then finished sixth at the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton and eighth at the 2002 European Indoor Athletics Championships in Vienna.

After failing to progress from the qualifying round at the 2002 European Championships he fell out of the international spotlight for some years, but returned in 2005 with a fourth place at the Universiade. In 2006 he finished thirteenth at the 2006 European Championships in Gothenburg.

His personal best jump is 5.85 metres, achieved in June 2001 in Stuttgart. This ranks him eighth among German pole vaulters.
