Three of the world’s best pole vaulters are set to take part in the second Ultimate Garden Clash on May 16.
They are, Olympic gold medallist Katerina Stefanidi, two-time US indoor gold medallist Katie Nageotte and Commonwealth Games champion Alysha Newman.
This clash comes after the first Ultimate Garden Challenge which included Mondo Duplantis, Renaud Lavillenie and Sam Kendricks – the event was a hit.
Duplantis and Kendricks ended up tying with 36 clearances each during the 30-minute competition.
The women are hoping to match or better the men’s tally of 98 clearances.
For the women’s challenge, the bar will be set at four metres, with each of the athletes competing at their respective training facilities.
The event is scheduled to take place on May 16 from 6:00 pm CEST with Stefanidi competing in Athens in Greece, Nageotte competing in Georgia in the United States and Newman competing in Ontario in Canada.
You can find all the details on the World Athletics website, and watch the event live on CBCSports.ca, as well as the World Athletics YouTube channel, Twitter feed, and Facebook page Saturday, May 16 at noon ET.
