Kassandra Hordal, a member with the Edmonton International Track Club, will be featured tomorrow morning on CBC's Cross Country Fun Hunt television program at 11:30am ET (8:30am PT, 9:30am MT).

12-year old Kassandra takes host Jordan Francis on a pole vaulting adventure at the ButterDome in Edmonton with coach Cory Choma followed by a tour through West Edmonton Mall. In an interview with the Edmonton Journal Kassandra said, "Jordan tried pole vaulting and he did pretty well."
In the interview with the Edmonton Journal Kassandra also said that she hopes more kids her age decide to try athletics and become as passionate as she is. She has a personal best of 2.35-metres and dreams of one day competing at the Olympic Games.
