Annual Pole Vault Cardiff

Sunday 10th March, NIAC

Well,that was a long day.Spent 11 hours in NIAC at the annual Vault Cardiff.Approximately 140 turned up from all over Britain and Newport.Yep !


Newport.We had 3 girls appearing for the first time at this event.


Ellie Mae(who as you know was mine,but has now crossed over to the dark side with Ed Thompson) put in a solid performance and got yet another PB at 3.03.


Then the complete novices. Nia Rees Stams in her first ever comp and as an U/15,and suffering with a huge lack of confidence,not only jumped 2.13 but also won her pool of 10 athletes. Wonder what she could do with confidence.


Then,last but not least, Aaliyah Beavon. WHO ! Aaliyah Beavon.A n under 11 who stole the show.And the only U/11 I the entire competition.She actually beat 4 U/13s and an U/15 when clearing an amazing 1m63. She also managed to empty my wallet in the process.The 1m63 was gained by being so brave and fearless.She was an absolute joy to watch.
