New York:

Reigning Olympic champion Jenn Suhr of the United States broke her own women's world indoor pole vault record on Saturday by clearing 5.03 meters at the Golden Eagle Invitational meet.

Suhr set the record at Brockport State in suburban Rochester, breaking the mark of 5.02m she established on March 2, 2013 at the US championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

That effort made her the second woman in the world to crack the 5m mark after Russia's Yelena Isinbayeva.

The 33-year-old won at London with a clearance of 4.75m after having taken a silver medal at Beijing in 2008.

It's a good omen for the season for Suhr ahead of this year's world indoors, which will be on home turf in March at Portland, Oregon.
