Lewes AC’s Livvy vaults to top of the UK rankings

THERE were some amazing performances by Lewes AC athletes over the last weekend, with National, County and Club records achieved, many personal bests secured and team prizes won on a very busy few days for the club.

Pride of place must go to Livvy Connor with her performances in the biggest pole vault competition in the UK at the Carshalton Arena in Sutton which attracted 124 of the top vaulters in the UK. When clearing 3.34m, Livvy increased her club record, broke the Sussex U15 girls record and moved her to the top of the UK ranking. Livvy is now the only female athlete in the UK in any athletic event to be ranked above all her male age group counterparts.
