Peter M. McGinnis, PhD, is a professor in the department of kinesiology at the State University of New York, Cortland, where he has taught since 1990. He is also the men’s and women’s pole vault coach at SUNY Cortland. Before 1990, Dr. McGinnis was an assistant professor in the department of kinesiology at the University of Northern Colorado. During that time he served as a sport biomechanist in the Sports Science Division of the U.S. Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs, where he conducted applied sport biomechanics research, tested athletes, taught biomechanics courses to coaches, and developed educational materials for coaches.

Dr. McGinnis is also the biomechanist for the pole vault event for USA Track and Field. As a member of the American Society for Testing and Materials, he serves as chair of the pole vault equipment subcommittee and the task group on pole vault helmets. He has authored numerous articles and technical reports about the biomechanics of pole vaulting and has been a reviewer for Sports Biomechanics, the Journal of Applied Biomechanics, Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, and the Journal of Sports Sciences.

Dr. McGinnis is a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American College of Sports Medicine, American Society of Biomechanics, and the International Society of Biomechanics in Sport. He received a PhD in physical education from the University of Illinois in 1984 and a BS in engineering from Swarthmore College in 1976.

Brendan Burkett, PhD, is a professor at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. He received his undergraduate and master’s degrees in engineering and attained his doctorate in biomechanics. Burkett’s teaching specializations are biomechanics, sport coaching, and performance enhancement. His research revolves around technology developments in human health and performance, and he has written more than 150 peer-reviewed articles and 180 conference publications for journals in sport science, biomechanics, and coaching.

As an international elite athlete, Burkett represented Australia for 13 years as a swimmer and was the Paralympic champion, world champion, world-record holder, and multiple medalist in the Commonwealth Games and Australian national championships. He served as the Australian team captain for the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games and as the flag bearer for the opening ceremonies of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Following his sporting career Burkett has been the sport scientist for the Australian Paralympic team for the 2002, 2006, 2010, 2010, and 2014 World Championships and the 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016 Paralympic Games. He has attended the past eight consecutive Paralympic Games, from 1988 to 2016.

Burkett has received several awards, including the Australia Day Sporting Award and the Order of Australia Medal (OAM), as well as induction into the Sunshine Coast Sports Hall of Fame, Swimming Queensland Hall of Fame, and the Queensland Sports Hall of Fame.

William C. Whiting, PhD, is a professor and codirector of the biomechanics laboratory in the department of kinesiology at California State University at Northridge, where he has won both the Distinguished Teaching Award and Scholarly Publication Award. Whiting earned his PhD in kinesiology at UCLA. He has taught courses in biomechanics and human anatomy for more than 35 years and has published more than 40 articles and 30 research abstracts. He is coauthor of Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injury.

Whiting currently serves on the editorial board of NSCA’s Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and serves as a reviewer for a number of scholarly journals. Whiting is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and has served as president of the Southwest regional chapter of ACSM. He is also a member of the American Society of Biomechanics, the International Society of Biomechanics, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

In his leisure time, Whiting enjoys playing basketball and volleyball, reading, camping, and hiking. He lives in Glendale, California, with his wife, Marji; sons, Trevor and Tad; and daughter, Emmi.
