To get this achievement they are going to want you to perform a perfect run-up.

There are three steps to Pole Vaulting. The first is when you run up to the pole (jamming the right stick left and right), when you place your pole down and take off (left trigger), and your posture (rotate right stick).

As you run you are going to fill up a large meter, to unlock this achievement you must fill the meter above the 90% mark. This is not too hard, just move the right stick back and forth as fast as possible. If you are having issues try not to move the stick all the way right then all the way left, try shorter strokes and that should help out a lot.

Please note if you are in career mode your speed has to be pretty high (in the nineties) to get the meter in the ninety percentile.

BEST SOLUTION TO GET SPEED TO 100%.
Get a guitar controller and shake that wammy bar. Once you are at 90+(I got to 95 to be safe,but I did hit 100) hit the guide button. Then hold down guide so you can shut down your controller. Then turn on a regular controller. Shake the right stick to stay in the nineties and then hit LT on the yellow. Took me many tries, but it was well worth it.
Questions or comments appreciated:)
