sets American record in high jump

INDIANAPOLIS – 2010
World Indoor bronze medalist Chaunte Lowe set the American record in the
women’s high jump Sunday at the 21st Lausitzer International
Athletics Meeting in Cottbus, Germany.

 

A three-time USA
Outdoor champion, Lowe cleared 2.04m/6-8.25 to win the women’s high jump
and break the 22-year-old American record. The previous record of
2.03m/6-7.75 was set by Louise Ritter back in 1988. Lowe came into the
competition at 1.81m/5-11.25 and jumped at every height in the
progression. After a first attempt clearance at 2.01m/6-7, Lowe needed
two attempts to clear 2.03m/6-7.75 before moving the bar up to
2.04m/6-8.25. It was on her third and final attempt that Lowe was able
to clear 2.04m and claim the American record.
