Kate Dennison raised her British pole vault record to 4.60 metres at the Pedros Cup meeting in Szczecin.

Dennison added two centimetres to the performance she achieved at the British Grand Prix in July, and clinched a third-place finish at the Polish venue.

The 25-year-old, who was sixth in the World Championships, was beaten by Anna Rogowska, the gold medallist from Berlin who cleared 4.70m, with Aleksandra Kiryashova given second on countback after also vaulting 4.60m.

In last night’s meeting, world 1,500 metres silver medallist Lisa Dobriskey lost for the second time in four days when beaten by Christin Wurth-Thomas in a sprint finish.

Dobriskey finished 0.32 seconds behind the American, who was fifth in Berlin and clocked a time of four minutes 7.31 seconds.

With her track season now ended, Dobriskey will concentrate on winning two important road mile races at the Great North City Games in Newcastle on Saturday and New York’s Fifth Avenue event the following weekend.

Britain’s Robert Tobin clocked 45.95secs for second place in the 400m, won by UK-based Sudanese athlete Yusif Rabah in 45.64secs.
