MUAC jumping for joy

Warren and the gang with the new matsNew Toys

Melbourne University Athletics Club has leapt in a new era with the delivery of a set of Olympic standard pole vault gear.  The purchase of the landing bags, stands and equipment was made possible by a generous donation from MUAC member and 2009 World Masters Games Pole Vault Silver Medallist Lyndsey Cattermole and a matched contribution from the University of Melbourne.  The University now has two complete pole vault sets, allowing two competitions to be held at once and further advance it as a Centre for Excellence for pole vault training and competition.
Intrepid MUAC members braved 40 degree temperatures to unload the equipment on Monday, 11th January and set it up.
The new facility will be officially opened soon. Stay tuned for more details.
