Competing in the final day of the 2019 Clemson Tiger Paw hosted at the Clemson University Indoor Complex, Rivers finished 21st with a top leap of 4.26m, which set a new Bermuda record.

In a post on social media, Rivers, who often competes in the pole vault as part of the multi-event heptathlon and decathlon events, said, “Bermuda has a new National Record holder in the Pole Vault!

“I actually no heighted two weeks ago in Texas during my heptathlon and then barely miss 14’ 5 1/2” yesterday. I’ve never had a pole vault coach my entire career, just a lot of prayer and faith in God. So it feels pretty cool to raise the bar a little higher for the next athlete that comes along.”
