Isinbayeva vaults 4.90 World Indoor Record.

07.03.2005

For the fourth time in as many competitions this winter, Yelena Isinbayeva added yet another centimetre to the World Indoor record in the Pole Vault to cap a thoroughly entertaining and fiercely competitive final day at the European Indoor Championships in the Spanish capital.
After an early miss at 4.60, a height only five in the field ultimately cleared, the 22-year-old Olympic champion displayed exemplary form as she sailed over 4.70, 4.80 and 4.90 with ease, the last with perhaps a dozen centimetres to spare.

УIТm just very happy that I was able to jump a World record for the crowd here,Ф said Isinbayeva after collecting one of two major titles that remained missing from her already immense collection. УIt was very important to jump at the European Indoor Championships.Ф

This winter, Isinbayeva has been inundated with questioners asking how high she can jump, and how many World records she could ultimately break. Again she avoided answering either directly, saying only: УI want to be like Bubka. He had 35 records. I want to have 36.Ф
