Pole vaulting bronze medal

Young New Zealand pole-vaulter Imogen Ayris has won a bronze medal at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

The 21 year old finished with a season best height of 4.45m. She finished third behind Australia’s Nina Kennedy and Englishwoman Molly Caudery.

New Zealand’s Olivia McTaggert was fourth.

It was an encouraging performance by Ayris, who failed to register a height in qualifying for last month’s World Championships.

Olivia McTaggart, who improved on her ninth-place finish at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, said: “I wanted to enjoy it out there, and I definitely did. I am proud of fourth place.
