Swedish teenager Angelica Bengtsson topped 4.58m in the Pole Vault to highlight the Folksam Grand Prix in Sollentuna on Thursday (5).

Her third attempt clearance added one centimetre to her previous PB of 4.57m set at the European Junior Championships in Tallinn last year. Bengtsson, who turns 19 on 8 July, holds the World junior record of 4.63m, set in the winter of 2011. She tried 4.65m in Sollentuna but missed.
