This summer, in the outdoor track and field, Nageotte was able to set two personal records. On July 20, she cleared 4.75 meters at the IAAF Diamond League in Monaco, and 4.80 meters on August 26 in Beckum, Germany, at the 20th jubilee of the women's pole vault competition.
Overall, this summer, Katie Nageotte improved her own personal best by seven centimeters from last year (4.73 meters).
