Competing in the Metaswitch Indoor Games at Lee Valley Athletics Centre on Sunday 11th December. Gemma Tutton became only the third UK U13 female athlete to clear 3m in the Pole Vault.
Gemma entered the competition with a first time bar clearance at 2.70m a new club Indoor vault record, she followed this up with first time clearances at 2.80m, 2.90m and 3m. The latter being a new Sussex record. Gemma then had the bar put at 3.13m and cleared easilly on her second attempt breaking the previous UK record 3.12m.
Gemma then had the bar set at 3.20m and soared over this on her third attempt, to break the UK record for a second time and set her sixth pb of the day a 57cm increase.
Well done Gemma and much more to come !
