World Indoor champion Sandi Morris of USA will open her season in the American Track League pole vault event at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, AR, on Sunday (31).
How To Watch Live Stream?
Morris, who sat out last week’s opening meet of the series, will take on a quality field this weekend. Live coverage will be on ESPN with WatchESPN.com streaming the coverage.
The Olympic champion owns an indoor personal best of 4.95m, achieved twice so far in her career, while she came close to that mark during the 2020 campaign after finishing the season with a clearance of 4.91m to win the Millrose Games title.
Morris is the Olympic silver medalist from Rio 2016.
On the list of challengers for this weekend’s event is American Megan Clark, who won the American Track League pole vault title at the first meeting last Sunday with a clearance of 4.50m. Marissa Kalsey, the third-place finisher a weekend ago with a mark of 4.30m, also returns to add some competition to the field with Jill Marois (USA) rejoining the field as well.
After failing to clear a height last weekend, following three unsuccessful attempts at the 4.00m opening height, Canadian Robin Bone will be hoping for better luck this time around. Bone’s countrywoman Anicka Newell, the 2017 world championship silver medalist, will also add depth to the competitive field. American Kortney Oates completes the rest of the lineup.
