POTCHEFSTROOM (RSA): World indoor record holder Kajsa Bergqvist believes after seeing 19-year-old Jaroslava Mahuchikh jump 2.06 in Slovakia, that she will not remain the record holder for a long time. “I’m not surprised. She has raised her heights constantly and is, as I see it, the greatest high jump talent that has ever existed,” says Bergqvist on the phone from South Africa for SVT.se. “If anyone is going to beat it right now, it’s her and I think she has the capacity to jump a bit over 210,” said Bergqvist. Mahuchikh plans two more competitions this indoor season, at Ukranian Indoor championships and European Indoor championships. “I wanted to jump high, my goal was 203. But 206 was unexpected, but I felt great so it was possible. After that i did not continue as I achieved what I wanted even more. But I can admit World record is now on my mind, but for later,” said Mahuchikh.
Today we’re celebrating the 13 year anniversary of Kajsa Bergqvist’s amazing indoor high jump world record of 2.08mðŸ‡¸ðŸ‡ª
