Stuczynski goes for AR


Jenn Stuczynski, the #2 vaulter all-time outdoors, took a run at the American record in the Nutrilite women's pole vault. After clearing 4.60m/15-1, Stuczynski raised the bar to 4.82m/15-9.75, 1cm beyond Stacy Dragila's indoor AR of 4.81m/15-9.25.

In her first major indoor competition, she missed the record but will have another chance Friday at the 101st Millrose Games, where her competitors will include Dragila herself, and throughout the remainder of the indoor season.

American Lela Nelson, the 2007 Thorpe Cup heptathlon champion, nabbed somewhat of an upset in the women's long jump, winning the competition with a mark of 6.50m/21-4. Elva Goulbourne of Jamaica was second at 6.40m/21-0, with 3-time heptathlon world champion Carolina Kluft of Sweden third at 6.34m/20-9.75.

DaBryan Blanton won a close Nutrilite 60 meters, edging out Demi Omole 6.65 to 6.67, while Miki Barber took the MBTA women's 60m in 7.27 over Brianna Glenn in 7.34. 2007 Cornell grad Morgan Uceny won the women's 800 in 2:05.75, Ashlee Kidd won the women's 200m wire-to-wire in 23.55, and Antwon Hicks took the Reebok men's 60m hurdles in 7.59, with Joel Brown second in 7.61.

For his victory, Hicks was named Team USA Athlete of the Meet, Presented by Visa.
