Jade Spencer-Smith has been a top pole vaulter for many years, breaking the UK age group bests in the U13 and U15 age groups. She has made a great start to her 2018 season vaulting a personal best of 3.90m twice. She recently finished 2nd at the British U20 Championships which secured her selection for the European Under 18 Championships.
Jade flies off to Hungary on Monday, where she will compete in her qualification round on Thursday (6th July) and fingers crossed also the final on Saturday 8th July.
Harrow AC are delighted to see Jade’s hard work rewarded with this selection. She has been training diligently under the watchful eye of coach Ellie Kormis for 4 years and also regularly competes for the Club at YDL competitions.
