One of the world’s top pole vaulters, Margot Chevrier was at Stade Louis II on Tuesday morning to introduce local youngsters, aged 10-15, to the sport.

Margot, from Nice, is the top French female pole vaulter with a personal best of 4m 70.

Just back from a World Athletics meet in Eugene, Oregon, Margot (22) will be competing in her first Wanda Diamond League event in Monaco on Wednesday August 10 at Stade Louis II, where she will attempt to beat her own record.
