(WINDSOR, ON) – Ouellette Avenue was taken over Friday evening for the second annual Night Flight, a pole vaulting demonstration presented by the University of Windsor Athletics Club. With a few invited guests, residents had a chance to see high calibre talent on the eve of the 2016 Olympics.
The street in down town Windsor was turned into a pole vault runway where the likes of Robin Bone and Rachael Wolfs led a contingent of vaulters up and over the high bar.
Bone is a three straight gold medal winner at the CIS level and has competed for Canada in various competitions. She will be participating at the Canadian Olympic Trials in Edmonton from July 7 through 10. There Bone will attempt to qualify for Rio 2016, but she’ll need to clear 4.50m and finish in the top three.
Wolfs helped the Windsor Lancers to a second straight CIS Track and Field title by winning a bronze medal in pole vault, earlier this year.
