IAAF World Youth Championships Silver and Personal Best
22 Jul 2015
Last Friday Year 11 Ruyton student Phillipa H came first for pole vault in her qualifying round at the IAAF World Youth Championships in South America. She went on to compete in the finals. Phillipa performed brilliantly on the grand stage and won silver (tied with the Chinese competitor), vaulting a Personal Best of 4.05 (10 centimetres higher than her previous best). The Swedish competitor won with a vault of 4.26 and did not miss a height the whole competition. She will be looking over her shoulder now though... Congratulations Phillipa.
