Katie Byres update
Exchange Street has been sponsoring one of the UK’s premier young athletes in Katie Byres since 2012 as she seeks to continue her rise to stardom. A pole vaulter, her personal best jump of 4m 52 (the height of a double decker bus) in 2012 was the 3rd highest jump in the world by an U20 Woman and is also the 3rd highest jump of all time for a UK woman.
Having recently competed in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow Katie is now training hard ahead of competitions in January, February and March 2015. She has also secured funding from the Sport England Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme that will provide invaluable support with training, physiotherapy, psychology and education.
Everyone at Exchange Street wishes Katie all the best in her upcoming competitions and is proud to continue to sponsor her.
