Nina Kennedy will take her talents to the street at the inaugural Pole Vault Street Meet in Bunbury.
Kennedy, who will be one of the key drawcards, was excited to be a part of something new as part of the event.
“There is just a runway in the middle of the street and the crowd is so close to you – that is the coolest part,” Kennedy told the West Australian. “It is pretty weird, but it is really cool. I have watched a few in Europe and competed in a kind-of street meet and it is so weird having the crowd right next to you enjoying it, while you are doing this crazy thing.
“When you get a crowd that is quite new to the event, they get so excited. Even at the opening height, they will be cheering quite loudly. It is not common in Australia.”
