Tenth British pas de deux title on the trot for vaulting’s Eccles sisters

  • Sisters Joanne and Hannah Eccles leapt into the record books at the weekend by winning their tenth British pairs vaulting title on the trot.

    The Eccles first won the pas de deux title in 2002 and have done so every year since, including at the British Vaulting Championships 2012 at the Bishop Burton Arena (22-23 September).

    Chef d’equipe Lucy Bell said: “To show such consistency is spectacular.”

    Joanne and Hannah also headed the senior women’s individual class, with Joanne taking the title for an eight year.

    Hannah was second, with Lucy Phillips in third and Helen Anderson fourth.
