Not a small step, more a big leap for Team East Lothian…

Congratulations to Adam Hoole who competed in his first pole vault competition at the weekend; the Glasgow Pole Vault Grand Prix at the Glasgow Pole Vault School in Tollcross, Glasgow.

Adam jumped 2.73m to reach a new personal best.  It was a first for Team East Lothian too with Adam our first athlete to complete in the Pole Vault, and as a result, he now also holds the Team East Lothian Pole Vault record!

Not content with just achieving a new p.b. and sealing a new record, Adam also finished the day in a creditable 3rd place in Pool C.

Its exactly the kind of experience that Coach Toni Minichiello was suggesting to the team during the discussion with him about multi-event development in our online Q&A session a couple of weeks ago.
