Leevale Pole Vaulters Reaching New Heights And Breaking Records

Leevale pole vaulters Una Brice and Conor Callinan travelled to France over the weekend to represent Ireland at the European U18 competition in Franconville, Paris.  Una finished 2nd in the women’s poles vault, twice breaking the National Youths record she set a week earlier. She cleared 3.65m and then 3.75m to extend the record by 14cm and over the last week has added 25cm onto her PB.
Conor cleared 4.10m in his opening height and then cleared 4.30m and was unlucky at the next height. It’s been a great experience for the athletes and all involved with them to make it possible.
