Vault Cardiff is part of the Vault Britain Series of pole vault only competitions.
Last year all three events; Vault Cardiff, Vault Manchester and Vault London were oversubscribed within hours of entries opening. All three events were superbly organised and had terrific atmospheres and some fantastic results. Congratulations to everyone who took part, vaulters, coaches, parents and supporters. I know the organisers were very happy how their events went and the series is testimony to the growing popularity of pole vaulting in the UK.
Vault Cardiff 2017
Sunday 12th March saw the third event in this year’s Vault Britain series head to the Welsh Capital for the 6th edition of Vault Cardiff. Having accepted 120+ entries, 96 athletes competed on the day, making it the biggest Vault Cardiff event so far. The atmosphere in the arena was first class – supporting some great performances from those competing in their first ever pole vault competition, to more seasoned international vaulters. The DJ kept the songs coming from 9am to 5.30pm in a full day that included 9 separate competitive pools across 3 different vault runways. As always, the event inspired the athletes to some fabulous performances, including a total of 32 personal best clearances from 20 different athletes and an additional 12 seasons best performances.
