Suhr sets world record to win USA Indoor Championships

The USA Indoor Track & Field Championships serve as the final stop of the 2013 USATF Indoor Championship Series. The event can be viewed Sunday LIVE on NBC Sports Network from 4-6 p.m. ET. Portions of today’s competition can be viewed online via RunnerSpace.com.

Suhr was in excellent form as she sailed through each progression of the bar. Suhr won the competition as she cleared 4.80m/15-9 on her first attempt. The bar then moved to 4.90m/16-0.75, which she also cleared on her first attempt. It was again one-and-done when the bar raised to the world record height of 5.02m/16-5.5. This was Suhr’s ninth American record in six years and her first world record. The previous world record of 5.01m/16-5.25 was set in by Yelena Isinbayeva in 2012.

Kylie Hutson finished as the runner-up with a personal best of 4.75m/15-7 to become the third-best indoor American vaulter of all-time.
