Kennedy wins season ending Diamond League meet

WA Pole Vaulter Nina Kennedy has won final Diamond League meeting on the year in Zurich.

It caps off an amazing year for the 25-year-old who had won bronze medal at the World Championships and gold at the Commonwealth Games.

Kennedy cleared 4.81m at her third attempt her season's best and just one centimetre off her personal best.

"I'm really happy that the world and my competitors especially can see that I am now a factor." Kennedy said.

"To come here and actually win against massive names has been super rewarding and cool.

"The plan is to just keep building. The girls that are winning medals and are up there are getting into their thirties. I definitely feel like I am one of the young ones coming through and I just want to continue this momentum.
