WAKEFIELD Harriers high jump star Martyn Bernard staked a claim for Great Britain selection for the London Olympics after clearing an Olympic B Standard leap in Germany last weekend.

Bernard showed signs that he is hitting form at just the right time by clearing 2.28m to win the Springer Meeting in Garbsen and go third in this year’s UK rankings.
