ONLY one record - the A Boys' pole vault mark - fell on the second day of the 51st National Schools Track and Field Championships yesterday.

However, it was broken in the most interesting way - not by one but by three different vaulters. That is not all - all three cleared the same height.

Hwa Chong Institution's Benjamin Ng and Sean Lim and Raffles Institution's Jacob Yao all soared above the 4.31m height set by Chua Wei Da in 2006.
