Sandi Morris won her first global gold medal in Birmingham in exciting fashion. On Day 3, right after Christian Coleman’s course record, Sandi Morris battled Ekaterina Stefanidi and Anzhelika Sidorova.
Sidorova cleared 4.80 meters and 4.85 meters, and the only one to clear 4.85 meters. Stefanidi missed at 4.90 meters. On her second attempt, Sandi Morris fought back, and cleared 4.90 meters. Sidorova cleared 4.90 meters on her third attempt.
