Londoner Alysha Newman has had a productive last few months.
On July 28th at the first-ever “Vault The Park” at Rib-Fest in London, Newman broke the Canadian Women’s Pole Vault record by clearing 4.61 metres at Victoria Park.
Weeks later, the London Legion Track Club member competed in Rio at her first Olympic Games.
Now, Newman has been invited to participate in the IAAF’s Diamond League for track and field.
Mike Stubbs had a chance to talk with Newman about it.
