Harry Coppel jumps a new British Record

The British pole vaulter Harry Coppell jumps a new British record in Manchester. With his first attempt over 5.42m he secured gold very early in the competition. However he had bigger aims for the competition and wants to break the British record set by Steven Lewis in 2012. In his third and final attempt he jumped over the 5.85meters and was surprised and very happy about his new personal best and British record. Coppell said: “An outdoor PB and a British record with 5.85m feels so very special. I don’t think anyone expected it here in Manchester. The last few events here have been bad weather but today has been great, no crowd of course and the new track has been really good.”
