Holly Bleasdale reaches the top of the world pole vault rankings.

Holly Bleasdale jumped to the top of the world pole vault rankings after winning the British Indoor title in Sheffield.

The Olympian claimed her place at the European Indoor Championships that take place next month with a clearance of 4.77m at the third attempt.

"I'm pretty confident I can go there and win gold," said the 21-year-old.

"When I jumped 4.77m I knew there was a lot more even though I am still not quite clicking everything together like in training."

This was Bleasdale's third straight British Indoor crown and maintained her unbeaten start to the year, after finishing sixth at the London Olympics.
