You forgot the long jump poles......
Conveniently, I suppose, as you couldn't find any wiggle-room to get out of that one.
Pole Vault being an athletic event where one leaps for height by vaulting over a bar with the aid of a long pole: Babylon Dictionary.
Though pole vault pole is also commonly used, long pole is also used for those that do not know the sport very well and is quite correct.

Interesting topic! I can recommend vinegar to fight most bacteria and viruses, for sore throats take honey vinegar, for gastric upsets, clean out with aloe or orange, these two tend to gas up a little before the laxative effect cleans the colon and intestines, maintain with any other vinegar beverage.
6 years and we have never really suffered, though my daughter picked up the local foot & mouth disease in kindergarten, the authorities are fast to lock down when there is an epidemic.

Now at that time I recall we were issued with salt tablets to take one a day, due to the humidity and also also encouraged to drink plenty of water much more than normal.
Headaches and dizziness are more likely to be caused by dehydration than anything else. Which my daughter also experiences occasionally after to much activity. I myself have become more conscious of drinking more water than normal becuase of dehydration symptoms too, constipation is also a sign of dehydration as the water in the colon is absorbed more quickly through the colon walls and expelled through the skin leaving pellet like faeces.
