Germán Chiaraviglio (born 16 April 1987 in Santa Fe) is an Argentine pole vaulter.[1]

Biography[edit]

His personal best of 5.71 metres was achieved at the World Junior Championships in Beijing on August 19, 2006, when he beat the old championship record (CR) of István Bagyula from 1988, and the Argentine senior record. He also holds the South American indoors record, with 5.52 metres, and is the only Argentine athlete to conquer a gold medal in any World Championship at any category.

Germán was first coached by his father within a family of pole vaulters; his brother Guillermo Jr. (in 2001) and sister Valeria (in 2005) also participated in World Junior Championships. During the 2006 South American Games, he won the gold medal (5.65 m) and his brother Guillermo silver (5.20 m). He currently trains in Italy with pole vaulting star Yelena Isinbayeva, co-coached by Vitaly Petrov.[2]
