Age 30; Pole vault The queen of pole- vault­ing is eye­ing her third con­sec­u­tive gold at the Lon­don Games. The Rus­sian has al­ready set 27 world records but aims to sur­pass men­tor Sergey Bubka’s mark of 35. Her world record of 5.06m is the equiv­a­lent of clear­ing a Lon­don dou­ble- decker bus with more than two feet to spare. She is a cap­tain in the Rus­sian army.
