HIGH JUMP STAR BAGS BRONZE IN ROME

Track and field now, and Central Coast high jump star Nicola McDermott has finished on the podium at the Diamond League event in Rome overnight.

The 23 year-old was beaten by two Ukranians, including Yuliah Levchenko, who was the only jumper to go clear at one-98.

McDermott’s performances have been so impressive, her coach even received a message from 1984 Olympic Heptathlon Champ Glynis Nunn.
