Jacob Clarke aged 17 is already a winner in Pole Vault.

Jacob started out as a gymnast and when he left the scene in 2014 he became interested in Pole Vault. He trained for 4 years at Notts AC where he reached the amazing height of 4.70 meters. During his training with Notts AC he won all the major championships he competed in. It was this success that led him to gain a scholarship to Millfield School in Somerset.

Here he carried on his success and gained 2nd place at the Nationals Championships and won the Welsh Championships with a Championship record.

When asked about his future Jacob said “My aspirations are to compete for Great Britain on a senior level and to be able to compete on the professional circuit”

Tony Duckworth, Managing Director of Cowens Financial Planning said  “We were introduced to Jacob via our client Stuart Cross of Morgan Cross Consulting, we benefitted from Stuarts expertise earlier this year and he advised us about Sports Aid and the sponsorship opportunities so we decided that we would like to help and he put us in touch with Jacob. We are proud to be supporting Jacob in his quest to become a star for Great Britain, we wish him every success and can’t wait to see him on the professional circuit.”
