Bedford & County’s Frankie Johnson broke the Championship record in winning the U15s pole vault in the England Atheltics National Age Group Championships last Saturday.

On his home turf at Bedford International Athletic Stadium Johnson, a pupil at Hastingbury Upper School, vaulted 4.12m to finish 72cm clear of nearest rival Rob Worman of Cheltenham Harriers.

Johnson will be back at Bedford this afternoon as he looks to continue his stunning form by trying to break his own British record of 4.32m in the finals of the Eastern Young Athletes’ League.
