A first podium finish at the Games for the 29-year-old
Holly Bradshaw has won the bronze medal in pole vault for Great Britain with her best-ever performance at the Olympic Games.
Competing in her third final, she improved on her London and Rio performances to claim third place, clearing 4.85 metres and just missing out with her three attempts at 4.90m.
Katie Nageotte cleared that latter height to jump into first after reigning Olympic champion Katerina Stefanidi, of Greece, failed to make her final attempt at the same level, guaranteeing the Team GB athlete Bradshaw a medal at the same time.
USA’s Nageotte held onto gold after world No1 Anzhelika Sidorova, of ROC, failed twice at 4.90m and then with her final effort at 4.95m.
