Chorley pole vaulter Holly Bradshaw claimed British Championships gold at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham after her Welsh Championships win last weekend.

The former Parklands High School pupil matched her mark of 4.50m in Cardiff for victory – and feels there is much more to come from her.

She said: “I haven’t been jumping too high, so I’m a little disappointed because I should be jumping a little bit higher, but that’s because I’m impatient. Things need tweaking but I’ve got plenty of time before the World Championships and Rio, so hopefully things will start to come together soon.

“I’m fit and healthy and felt awesome on the run-up – I’m missing a bit of the timing.

“As soon as I find my rhythm, I’ll be jumping 4.70 plus.

“It was really important to win the title and add to my British Athletics medals.”
