Howe flies to new outdoor best in Germany


 

The weekend victory was her second-best performance ever, behind her clearance of 4.72 metres at Sergey Bubka’s annual ‘Pole Vault Stars’ indoor meeting in Donetsk in February which stands as the Australian record.

The West Australian’s previous outdoor best of 4.62 metres helped her claim victory in Melbourne at the Commonwealth Games last year.

The IAAF rule interpretations were recently clarified to enable indoor performances to be recognised as world, continental and national records, therefore Athletics Australia recognises Howe’s 4.72m as the Australian, Oceania and Commonwealth record.

Not to be outdone, fellow West Australian pole vaulter Vicky Parnov broke her own national under 18 and under 20 record at the same meet. The 16-year-old’s leap of 4.40m easily accounted for her previous personal best height of 4:32m. Her result is promising given the IAAF World Youth Championships in Ostrava are only six days away.

West Australian pole vaulter Vicky Parnov competed in Karlsruhe, Germany. Parnov reached 4.27m to claim fourth position

Closer to home on the Gold Coast, Sally McLellan has recorded yet another world championships 'A' qualifier in the 100m hurdles, clocking 12.93 (+1.7). In their last hit-out prior to departing for Ostrava, our World Youth team produced numerous personal bests across the two-day meet, a promising sign for the main event in six days time.
