Track Beauty of the Week: Cathrine Larsåsen
January 23, 2011Posted by on
Cathrine Larsåsen is this week’s track beauty!
Larsåsen is a certified athletics star in her native Norway. The 24-year old from Oslo won three Norwegian national pole vault titles from 2004 to 2006. She is also the Norwegian record holder for the event (outdoors and indoors).
Through the years, Larsåsen has improved considerably. From 3.81m in 2005, the powerfully-built Norwegian broke the 4.00m barrier the coming year. Since then, she has added a total of 0.54m to her personal best in 5 years.

Larsåsen leaped to a lifetime best of 4.35m in the qualifying rounds of the 2010 Barcelona European Championships. In the final, she again matched her 2-day old personal best and finished 8th among all competitors.
