Pole vault ace Lucy soars to personal best in America

LUCY Bryan is warming up nicely for the Commonwealth Games on the evidence of her form during the indoor season.

The Bristol & West AC international pole vaulter, who is a student at Akron University in Ohio, rose to second on the UK Rankings after setting a personal best of 4.47m in the Akron Invitational.

The jump added seven centimetres to her PB set last year – both indoors and when finishing third in the European U23 Championships – and puts Lucy second to current GB No 1 Holly Bradshaw, who cleared 4.60m in France last weekend.

And to put the effort into true perspective Lucy’s 4.47m also lifted her to fourth on the UK All Time List (indoors and outdoors).
