Watford and St Albans athlete Sue Yeomans lands quartet of Masters golds
5:35pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in Local Sport
Watford's Sue Yeomans celebrated winning four gold medals at the World Masters Athletics Championships in Brazil.
The St Albans AC member started off in Porto Alegre competing in the women's over 60 long jump and achieved her first win with a distance of 4.02m.
After a day's rest, Yeomans took part in the high jump and cleared 1.26m to secure first place. The triple jump was her next event and a brilliant effort of 8.12m was enough to land her third victory of the championships.
This left Yeomans to concentrate on her favourite event, the pole vault, which she trained the hardest for.
The current European record holder had seen her coach Alan Williams collect a gold medal in his pole vault in the lead up to her event.
After the first few jumps Yeomans was ahead of her competition and she cleared 2.70m to seal her fourth win of the competition.
