Riga’s Jenn Suhr is back on top of the women’s pole vaulting world after clearing 15-10 at the Gill Field Fest in Champaign, Ill. Saturday.

The jump takes the world lead, passing the 15-8 vault by Brazil’s Fabiana Murer earlier this season.

Suhr, the No. 1 ranked women’s pole vaulter in the world, heads to London for the Olympics in about two weeks. Suhr’s previous best this season was 15-1 when she qualified for the Olympic team two weeks ago in Eugene, Ore.

“We wanted to get in a meet where I could relax and test my full run,” Suhr said. “It was nice to go somewhere where there was not as much pressure and I could just go out and have fun.”
