Just as we went to press with this week’s Newsletter we received fantastic news from the USA. Our Champion Under-23 Pole-Vaulter, Lucy BRYAN, improved the Club Indoor Record once more this season to achieve a great clearance of 4.40 metres in the NCAA Division 1 Indoor Championships in College Station, Texas. This leaves Lucy at number 1 in the UK Rankings, matches her outdoor best and consolidates her status as Club number 1. She last vaulted 4.40 (outdoors) in 2013 as an Under-20 and has really resurrected her career since embarking on the adventure of joining an American University. Lucy in January vaulted a Club Indoor Record of 4.30 metres and followed it with 4.33 metres in February before this current fantastic step forward to 4.40 metres.
We hope the UK Selectors are suitably impressed to name Lucy as one of our competitors in the London World Championships in the Summer. We also look forward to further great performances this year.
