Watch: Nicolai Bonello breaks pole vault national record three times at Marsa meeting

Young pole vaulter Nicolai Bonello reached new heights during Saturday’s athletics meeting at the Matthew Micallef St John track at Marsa.

Bonello was in hot form as he managed to better his national record three times to secure victory in the event.

The La Salle Athletics Club athlete managed to clear 4.51 metres to set a new national record – one centimetre higher than his own previous best of 4.50m that he set last year.

However, Bonello was not finished yet and he decided to lift the bar to 4.56 metres. He managed to clear that height on his first attempt for his second national mark of the day.

Bonello then opted to try and breach the 4.60m barrier when attempting 4.61m and once again he managed to rise higher than the bar at the first attempt for another impressive national mark.

The youngster tried to go even higher at 4.65m but failed to clear, but no doubt the result achieved on Saturday will instil confidence in him to keep flourishing in this discipline as he eye higher targets.
