Pole vaulting has progressed rapidly in terms of improved mechanical properties and better appearance by using poles made of flexible fiberglass material. Competitive pole vaulting requires specific characteristics that promote higher jumps. In this research, simulation analysis to optimize the joint torque, pole stiffness and pole length was done by using Genetic Algorithm. Here, the vaulter was expressed by the three-dimensional model including twisting the waist. Genetic algorithm in which the joint torques of the vaulter were expressed in terms of spline interpolating curves. From the results, it was clarified that there is optimal pole characteristic to the vaulter's initial velocity.
