Anastasia Shvedova sets national pole vaulting record at St. Petersburg Cup
The athlete from Grodno participated in the prestigious tournament out of competition but this did not hamper her from demonstrating the best result of all participants. She set her record on her third attempt, reaching 4.42m, beating her own previous record by a centimetre. The overall winner of the competition was Russian Alexandra Kiryasheva, who only cleared 4.2m. Anastasia moved from Russia to Belarus in the autumn of 2009 and is continuing her preparations for the European Indoor Championship, to be held in March in Paris.
