Suhr uses extra try to set national pole vault record

(Reuters) - Olympic silver medalist Jenn Suhr used a rare fourth attempt to set a national indoor pole vault record of 4.86 meters(15 feet 11 1/4 inches) at the U.S. championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Sunday.

Only Russian Olympic gold medallist Yelena Isinbayeva, whose world record is 5.00 meters (16 feet 4 3/4 inches), has jumped higher indoors.

Officials granted Suhr the extra try after noticing the pole vault equipment was improperly set after the six-foot, 29-year-old failed on her third attempt at 4.86 (15 feet 11 1/4 inches).

She then cleared the height to surpass Russian Svetlanta Feofanova by a centimeter (one-quarter inch) as the number two indoor vaulter of all-time.

"The best is just to keep coming out healthy and keep jumping," Suhr told reporters after breaking her 2009 national record of 4.83 meters (15 feet 10 inches).

Isinbayeva 10 times has cleared 4.86 meters (15 feet 11 1/4 inches) or better indoors.
