Katie Byres, Glossop’s local pole vaulting champion can now be found at

Katie’s dad, Andy Byres said, “We would like to thank the generosity of First Impression who have built Katie’s site, it is fantastic. The website is going to be an important hub of information as Katie’s career progresses and because First Impression has built it with a content management system, I can update the site myself with all of Katie’s news and events. I’ve already put the details of Katie’s first Under 20 International from this weekend at Loughborough, where she came 3rd!”

Helen Duncan, MD at First Impression said, “We were delighted to be able to donate this website so Katie can focus her funds on buying equipment. She is an exceptional athlete and her dedication, and that of her family is clear to see. I hope the website helps to launch her career and give her the recognition and support she needs to progress further. I will, like most local people, be watching Katie’s career with interest over the next few years.”

Katie has broken all British records in each of her age groups and is currently 7th overall in the UK senior rankings, although the youngest by 3 years. Katie is also studying hard for A levels at Glossopdale’s Sixth Form College but after her final exam next week her training schedule will be full on once more, although what that can entail I can only imagine, she’s been training 7 times a week whilst studying!

Her next major challenge will be the European Junior Championships at the end of July in Estonia. How she performs over the summer will determine whether she will take a year out to train full time in preparation for the London 2012 Olympic selections in June next year. This is one young lady to watch! And now with a brand new website we can!
