Eugene, Oregon (AP) - Jenn Suhr cleared 15 feet, 1 inch to win the women's pole vault in the U.S. track trials for a return trip to the Olympics.
Becky Holliday finished second Sunday after clearing 14-11, and Lacy Janson earned a spot on the U.S. team with a third-place finish at 14-9. All three women met the Olympic standard needed to compete in London.
Suhr, the 2008 Olympic trials champion, won the silver medal in Beijing, finishing behind Russian world-record holder Yelena Isinbayeva.
Suhr holds the American record in the pole vault, but last year she struggled with fatigue and was diagnosed with Celiac disease.
