Pole Vault: 4.25m  Brisbane AUS, 13 Jan 2018
BIOGRAPHY

Lisa Campbell was a talented level 8 national level gymnast and triple jumper in her teenage years. But she would not transition to pole vault until she was 21. “In 2013 I took up pole vaulting because I thought it would be fun, something new and different. I was triple jumping at the time and the coach I had at the time thought I would be good at it because of my gymnastics background.” 


It took a few years to develop and by 2016, aged 23, she had vaulted 3.70m. Early in 2017, she was over four metres and placed fourth at the nationals. She embarked on a big winter of training in 2017 and it paid immediate dividends when she opened her 2017/18 domestic season on November 20 with a PB of 4.15m. In January 2018 she vaulted her first Commonwealth Games B qualifier, with a height of 4.25m. She achieved this on another two occasions. At the Australian Championships and Commonwealth Games trials she cleared 3.90m in the qualifying round, but in the final she no heighted at 3.95m. Disappointment at her performance, turned to joy when she was selected in the Commonwealth Games team. 


Lisa has a degree in Exercise and Sports Science, majoring in Clinical Exercise Physiology (Hons 1) from University of Queensland and is half way through a Masters in Sports Science, major in Strength and Conditioning, from Edith Cowan University. Her hobbies are Cat socks collecting/sock collecting and Sudoku. Her hero is former training partner Alana Boyd and daughter of her coach Ray Boyd. Lisa is a strong believer in life balance. 


“I think the biggest thing I have learnt about pole vault and training is that it is just one part of me, and one part of my life. I have so many other wonderful things in my life and I am so lucky to be doing what I am doing. Being able to train and compete the way I do is such a valuable opportunity so I’m definitely keen to have a solid crack.”
