Congratulations to our young pole vaulter Katie Byres who jumped to a new UK Indoor Junior Pole vault record at the weekend. Katie Byres jumped 4m16 in Orleans, France on the French Elite Pole Vault Tour finishing in 5th place. This jump of 4m 16 is a new UK Junior (U20) Indoor record. This was Katie's first competition of the new season and was off a short run up. A great start to the season for Katie. Andrew Sutcliffe also jumped in the same competition after a long layoff due to injury. Off a short run, he was very pleased to be back jumping and cleared a height of 5m 21. Well done to club coach Julien Raffalli who, you'll have heard on the media, also brought UK's No 1 pole Vaulter Holly Bleasdale to a new UK record. (it's worth knowing that Sale pole vaulters are unquestionably the best squad in Britain?
