Euxton’s Holly Bradshaw produced an IAAF Diamond League best finish of second place at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham on Sunday.

Just over a fortnight after finishing sixth at the IAAF World Championships at the London Stadium, with 4.65m, she recorded a height of 4.61m in Birmingham – her fourt-best height of the season.

She now moves on to the next round, the Weltklasse Zürich meeting in Switzerland on Thursday, before the AG Memorial Van Damme at the King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels on Friday, September 1st.

“Those were tricky conditions, but I’ve finished second in a Diamond League, which I’ve only done once before, so I’m really chuffed.”
