    Eliza McCartney isn't pulling the pin just yet

    Eliza McCartney isn't pulling the pin just yet


    The Kiwi pole vaulter, who claimed bronze at the Rio 2016 Games, failed to reach the 4.7 metre olympic qualification mark at her third and final qualifying event in Auckland.

    The 24-year-old admits she's not up to standard after battling Achilles and hamstring issues, as well as a genetic autoimmune disorder

    But McCartney isn't giving up.
