Invent a new Olympic sport (Post #259)

Invent a new Olympic sport.  Take two sports you like and combine them into a single event. Describe the rules for how the game will be played.

Ok—I think this is a very silly, silly topic. So I am going to give it a silly, silly answer. Here is the sport: Pole vaulting while diving from the high platform. Yeh—that sounds crazy dangerous. You climb up the platform ladder clutching your pole vault. The platform length must be increased by quite a bit, so it must be constructed farther back from the pool’s edge to allow for the increased length. You must run full out for however many feet it is. You must stick the pole vault pole about 2 feet short of the platform edge so you have time to fling yourself up and out. Once you are at the height you must release the pole, then proceed the same way as if it were a dive. Style point additions and splashback penalty points do apply. I think it definitely has possibilities!
