Review: Katie Nageotte sets new personal best with 4.80 meters in Germany (Includes first-hand account)

Nageotte came in first place, winning the 20th jubilee of the women’s pole vault competition in Beckum, Germany, with 4.80 meters. Nageotte was able to clear 4.80 meters on her third and final attempt, thus setting a new personal best. She also tried to clear 4.92 meters three times with no success.

A 2018 national indoor champion, Nageotte bested fellow American pole vaulter Sandi Morris, who finished in third place, with 4.70 meters.

With 4.80 meters, Nageotte is tied for the sixth-best outdoor performance in the world this summer season. She improved her previous outdoor personal best (4.75 meters) by five centimeters. As Digital Journal previously reported, Sandi Morris is still the world leader with 4.95 meters.
