Sandi Morris wins first ever Diamond League Pole Vault in style

In her first ever Diamond League performance, Sandi Morris not only won the Pole Vault event, but she set a MR, WL & PB with a 4.83m mark. Morris was the class of the women’s pole vault field. The 23-year-old American topped 4.83 to equal the Diamond League record and take command of the world lead.

“I’m really proud of my performance here,” said Morris, who topped 4.95m indoors in March. “After a 20-hour flight, I had only a little time to rest. Having been able to put up such a performance is incredible.”

Nichole Buchler raised the Swiss national record to 4.78m to finish second with Katerina Stefanidi of Greece third with 4.73m, an outdoor best.
