HOLLY Bradshaw carried on her impressive season after finishing in third place at the Anniversary Games in London.

The Chorley ace cleared 6.65m and was only beaten by European champion Anzhelika Sidorova and World and Olympic champion Katerina Stefanidi.

The competition included nine of the top 10 vaulters in the world and Bradshaw said ahead of the competition -which doubled as a Diamond League meeting - was a dress rehearsal for the World Championships in Doha in September.

And there was little between the top six, Sidorova from Russia and Greece’s Stefanidi separated on countback after both cleared 4.75m.

And it was the same story for Bradshaw who got third place ahead of Cuba’s Yarisley Silva, Venezuela’s Robeilys Peindado and Alysha Newman from Canada who all cleared 4.65m

Bradshaw went in to the competition having produced a season’s best clearance of 4.72m in Lausanne before winning in Rottach in Germany.

That followed a fine indoor season for the 27-year-old who won both the UK Indoor Championship title and the Muller Indoor Grand Prix - both in Birmingham - before picking up a silver medal at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow.

Bradshaw will be back in Birmingham next month for the Muller Grand Prix - another Diamond League event.
