Eliza McCartney sets new record

June 25, 2018

Kiwi pole vaulter Eliza McCartney has continued her excellent form, setting a national record at a competition in Germany overnight.

The 21-year-old broke her own national and Oceania record with a monster jump of 4.92m.

It surpasses her jump of 4.85m, at the time a personal best, in a Diamond League event in Oregon last month by six centimetres.

McCartney’s effort in Mannheim ranks as the second best of the year. The best jump so far this year was by American Jennifer Suhr when she jumped 4.93m.

It’s also good enough to sit in fourth in the list of all-time leaps after Suhr (4.93m), Sandi Morris (5m) and Yelena Isinbayeva (5.06m).
