Tina Sutej is the world leader and Slovak national record holder at 4.75m, wants to go even higher in this non championship year.
LJUBLJANA (SLO): Despite the lack of major championships to aim for this summer, Tina Sutej is hoping she can further improve her national record of 4.75m which she vaulted at the Slovenian Cup on Sunday, informs the Slovenian Federation. “I am very pleased; the competition went great. I knew I was well prepared. It was my first event of the summer season. The jumps at the starting heights were not good, but I was able to cross the bar, and at 4.75m I performed excellently and jumped it easily. I wanted a national record, but even with 4.65m I would be happy. I am continuing my good form from the winter season and I hope that it will continue to be so in the future. Even though there are no important championships this year, I want to progress and jump high,” she said.
