Date Started: July 24, 1976  
Date Finished: July 26, 1976  
(Competitors: 28; Countries: 14; Finalists: 20)  
    Venue(s): Olympic Stadium, Olympic Park, Montréal, Québec
Overview by IAAF    1976_olympic_stadium.jpg
Roberts, who had set a world record of 5.70 in the US Trials, and Władysław Kozakiewicz, the world’s best in 1975, were considered the best in the field. Twenty cleared 5.10 to qualify, suggesting that 5.20 would have been a more sensible standard. In the final, 12 cleared 5.25, with Kjell Isaksson, François Tracanelli (FRA), and Vladimir Kishkun (URS) the most notable of those unable to get to that level. Kozakiewicz cleared 5.25, but limped out of the pit, and could go no higher. The medals were determined at 5.50, with Roberts, Ślusarski, and the surprising Kalliomäki – who set a personal best – all clearing first time. Abada and Bell gambled and lost at 5.55. The third of the strong Polish squad – Buciarski – also missed twice at 5.55 after one failure at 5.50. No-one was able to clear 5.55, leaving Ślusarski the winner on countback over Kalliomäki after Roberts failed at 5.60.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
There were three favorites in 1976 – Americans Dave Roberts and Earl Bell, and Poland's Władysław Kozakiewicz. But Kozakiewicz struggled, could only clear 5.25 (17-2¾), and finished 11th. Six vaulters remained in the competition after 5.45 (17-10½) – Roberts, Bell, Poland's Tadeusz Ślusarski and Wojciech Buciarski, Finland's Antti Kalliomäki, and France’s Patrick Abada. At 5.50 (18-0½), Abada and Bell passed. Ślusarski, Kalliomäki, and Roberts cleared that height on their first try, and Buciarski missed once and passed to 5.55 (18-2½). That was the end of the clearances. Roberts passed to 5.60 (18-4½) where he missed three times, while the other vaulters all missed at 5.55 (18-2½). Ślusarski won the gold on countback, using the fewest vaults tie-breaker, over Kalliomäki, as both had no misses thru 5.50 (18-0½). Roberts was bronze medalist as he had missed once at 5.35 (17-6½).
