Birmingham - On August 18, American pole vaulter Sandi Morris won first place in the women's pole vault competition at the IAAF Diamond League Birmingham.
Morris won the competition in Birmingham with 4.62 meters, which she cleared on her first attempt, and the same was true for her previous height, 4.52 meters. She failed at all three attempts at 4.72 meters. During this IAAF Diamond League event, all the female athletes had to battle dangerous weather conditions such as a massive headwind.
2018 European champion and Greek pole vaulter Katerina Stefanidi came in second place with 4.52 meters, which she jumped successfully on her first try.
As Digital Journal reported, American pole vaulter Katie Nageotte was tied in third place with Greek pole vaulter Nikoleta Kiriakopoulou, both of which cleared 4.40 meters on their first attempt.
Thus far, Morris is in the lead in the women's pole vault rankings of the 2018 IAAF Diamond League competitions. Morris is also the world leader in the women's pole vault this outdoor season with 4.95 meters.
This past March, Morris won the gold medal at the IAAF World Indoor Championships, which was her first gold medal win at a major track and field competition. Morris previously won the silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and the 2017 World Championships in London.
