LONDON — Maggie Steele, the world’s most inspiring storybook pole-vaulter, was an honored guest at Vault London 2014, held Sunday, Jan. 12th, at the David Weir Leisure in Carshalton, Surrey.
Copies of the young adult novel, Maggie Vaults Over the Moon were awarded to top finishers.
The invitation to attend the premier event came from Allan Williams, Olympic gold-medalist and Senior Coach at The London Pole Vault Academy.
“It seems Maggie did inspire people,” Williams said, referring to the many personal bests recorded at the event.
Maggie says, “It was amazing to watch the great performances and feel the spirit of athleticism in Great Britain! The London Pole Vault Academy is certainly the place to be in terms of great facilities, great attitudes, and great coaching!”
