(Reuters) - Olympic champion Jennifer Suhr upped her own women’s pole vault indoor world record by clearing 5.03 meters in New York on Saturday.

Competing at the Golden Eagle Multi and Invitational in Brockport, the American added a centimeter to her old mark of 5.02, set in Albuquerque, New Mexico on March 2, 2013. Russian Yelena Isinbayeva holds the women’s world outdoor record at 5.06 meters.
