Yesterday, London, ON native Alysha Newman broke her own Canadian record when she cleared 4.75 metres in the womenâ€™s pole vault. Her previous record was 4.71m.
At the world track and field championships, she finished seventh place with a jump of 4.65m.
She celebrated her new accomplishment with a backflip after she looked up to see that the bar stayed up.
Congratulations to the 23-year-old on this outstanding achievement.
