Jenn Suhr Sets Pole Vault Record

Photo by Tom Rivers – Jenn Suhr of Kendall, shown during a September pole vault competition at Roberts Wesleyan College, is the new world indoor record holder.

Jenn Suhr added another major accomplishment to an already golden resume last weekend. Suhr, a resident of Kendall and Churchville, shattered the indoor world record in the pole vault on March 2, when she cleared 16 feet, 5½ inches at the USA Track & Field Indoor National Championships.

Suhr won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics and earned the silver in 2008. She is coached by her husband Rick Suhr, who grew up in Lyndonville. Two years ago they bought a home in Kendall.
