A BARNSLEY student who is working his way up the rankings is aiming to compete in the next Olympics.

Adam Hague, 17, is third in the Great Britain senior rankings for pole vaulting and recently set a new British junior pole vault record in Texas.

He said: "It has been fantastic to go to different countries and compete, travelling and being involved in a sport are two of the best things you can do as a young person." 

As well as the Commonwealth and Olympic games, Adam hopes to qualify for the World Championships in Beijing.
