article imageReview: Katie Nageotte jumps 4.75 meters in Monaco, sets personal best Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 21, 2018 in Sports
On July 20, American pole vaulter Katie Nageotte competed in the women's pole vault at the IAAF Diamond League in Monaco.
Nageotte was tied in fifth place with fellow American athlete Jennifer Suhr, where Nageotte set a new personal best of 4.75 meters, thus increasing her previous outdoor personal best by two centimeters.
This women's pole vault competition at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Monaco was perhaps the most competitive event in the sport's history, especially since eight female athletes vaulted over 4.75 meters. Russian pole vaulter Anzhelika Sidorova won the competition with a new personal best of 4.85 meters, and Cuban athlete Yarisley Silva came in second with a season best of 4.80 meters. 2016 Olympic gold medalist and reigning outdoor world champion Katerina Stefanidi came in third place with 4.80 meters, and 2018 indoor world champion Sandi Morris came in fourth place with 4.80 meters. Morris is still in the lead in the IAAF Diamond League rankings.
