• KIWI high flyer just bubbling over with Bronze!

    20 August at 17:23 from atlas

    Going to her first Olympics was exciting enough for Eliza McCartney, but then she succeeded in clearing 4.50m, 4.60m, 4.70m and 4.80m at her first attempts, and she actually led the pole vault competition almost until its conclusion (that clearance of 4.80m elevated her to equal-15th on the World All-Time Best Performance list!)

    Eliza went on to try to clear 4.85m, and although her first effort was close (and would have given her the title if she had succeeded), she unfortunately failed to get over the bar. Only two other women surmounted 4.85m, and that's what decided where the gold and silver medals would be going.

    Subsequently the IAAF wrote an article highlighting her progress to date...
