Next Wednesday, pole vaulting is taking place at the Atrium on Takutai (yes you read it right) and we couldn’t be more excited.

This innovative event will see New Zealand’s top pole vaulters, including Olympic medallist Eliza McCartney taking on world class international competitors from the USA and Canada under the glass roof. A special portable pole vault runway will be erected within the Atrium on Takutai and will see the athletes jump up to five metres in the air in an attempt to clear the bar. The unique confines of the Atrium will allow spectators to get up-close –  taking in all the grace, athleticism and power of some of the world’s best athletes in action.

The event is complimentary for spectators to attend and athletes will be available for signatures and selfies after they are finished competing. The Vertical Pursuit forms part of the Athletics New Zealand International Series and is brought to your by Les Mills, for more information on this event and others in the series head to: www.athletics.org.nz/international
