Gale targets place in final at World Junior Championships

ANOTHER west high jumper on international duty this week is TomTomGale2.17m(2)May2016 Gale.

Gale, who is a first claim member of Team Bath AC but also competes for Bristol & West AC in the British Men’ League under the higher qualification rule, goes in the qualifying pools of the competition at the World Junior Championships in Poland tomorrow.

“A year ago I would never have believed that this would happen and this while season is a new ballpark for me,” said Gale (pictured right competing for Bristol & West AC).

“The aim in Poland will be to try and make the final, I would be exceptionally happy to do that,” added Gale.

If he survives qualifying the final of the high jump will be on Friday.
