DOHA (QAT): Sandi Morris said she sprained her ankle in Doha where she cleared 4.84m to claim the win and that her goal this season is to break the world record. “I’m proud of my result and my new motto is: you’re not out until you miss out three times in a row! I jumped 4.84m today and I feel like I’m on a roll this year. I sprained my ankle a tiny bit, but I’m okay. My goal is, of course, 5.01m – I want to break the world record this year. You won’t break it unless you attempt it!” she said.
RunBlogRun opines: Sandi Morris had a do or die moment in Birmingham. Could she beat Katerina Stefanidi? Would she allow herself to be second once again, or would she challenge herself. I was sitting in the BBC radio booth when Sandi Morris took the lead from the Russian vaulter. Morris became the warrior of the pole vault and her clearances gave herself confidence. Morris can win anything now.
