ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Jenn Suhr set a women’s pole vault indoor record by clearing 16 feet, 512 inches Saturday at the USA Track & Field Indoor National Championships.
Suhr cleared the bar with plenty to spare on her first attempt. Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia set the previous record last year at 16-514.
It was the sixth straight national title for Suhr and seventh overall.
In the women’s 3,000 meters, Chelsea Reilly dove for the finish line to edge out Emily Infeld and Lisa Uhl with a time of 9 minutes, 23.12 seconds.
Reilly was 0.12 seconds ahead of Infeld and 0.25 seconds in front of Uhl.
