BREAKING: Vault ace Cutts gets bronze - but it's disappointment for Hague

POLE vaulter Luke Cutts has taken a bronze in the men's pole vault at the Commonwealth Games - but fellow Rotherham competitior Adam Hague agonisingly missed out on the medals.

Both made it into the final four of the nine-man shootout on the Gold Coast, but Kimberworth 20-year-old Hague missed out after failing three times at 5.55m.

His training partner Cutts, from Thurnscoe, also failed three times but took the bronze on countback, Hague having had more failures during the event.

Hague's 5.45m success was a season's outdoor best while Cutts medal follows his silver success in Glasgow four years ago.

Aussie Kurtis Marshchall took the gold ahead of Canadian Shawnacy Barber.
