Jennifer Suhr breaks her indoor world record in Pole Vault.

2012 Olympic pole vault champion Jennifer Suhr added a centimeter to her world indoor record* when she cleared 5.03m at the Golden Eagle Multi and Invitational in Brockport, New York state, on Saturday (30).

Her previous world indoor record of 5.02m came in Albuquerque on 2 March 2013.

Suhr jumped her opening height of 4.60m on her second attempt, 4.82m with her first jump, and then cleared the world indoor record height with her third effort.


“You just don’t see people break world records at small meets,” Rick Suhr, the vaulter’s coach and husband, told local reporters. “But she’s capable of that. She’s posted big marks, just huge marks all year. That’s a huge, huge jump.”
