Lisek and Kendricks 593 WL
CLERMONT-FERRAND (FRA, Feb 24): Piotr Lisek and Sam Kendricks both cleared a world-leading height of 5.93m at the All-Star Perche with Lisek defeating the world outdoor champion on countback. Australia’s Kurtis Marshall improved to 5.87m to finish third. In another excellent competition in Clermont-Ferrand, three more vaulters cleared 5.80m: Poland’s Pawel Wojciechowski, Brazil’s Thiago Braz and Italy’s Claudio-Michel Stecchi (PB). For Stecchi, he was only two centimetres adrift of Giuseppe Gibilisco’s long-standing Italian indoor record. In the women’s competition, Anzhelika Sidorova defeated Angelica Bengtsson on countback at 4.81m, an outright Swedish record for the latter. Ninon Guillon-Romarin cleared a French indoor record of 4.73m to finish joint third with Canada’s Alysha Newman whose clearance also represented a national indoor record. There was another national indoor record for Belarus in fifth for Iryna Zhuk who cleared 4.65m.
