Angelica Moser came fourth in the pole vault in Zurich with a distance of 4.66 metres. Winner Nina Kennedy jumps the national record.
7 days after finishing fifth at the World Championships in Budapest, Angelika Moser jumped to fourth place in the pole vault at Zurich Main Station as part of the Weltklasse Zürich. After reaching 4.66m on her second attempt, the Andelfingen native failed three times at the 4.76m mark.
Moser had previously jumped over the entry height of 4.36 meters and 4.51 meters on his first attempt. After the competition, the 25-year-old admitted to a certain degree of fatigue: “I can already tell I’m tired.” It was a very emotional week. She was more in need of the support of the crowded station hall in Zurich: “Fortunately, I had the advantage of playing at home today and the crowd helped me a lot.”
Only one winner in Zurich
At the top, there was a new duel between Katie Moon (USA) and Nina Kennedy (Australia), who shared the world title in Budapest. The level was slightly higher than in Hungary, with both crossing the 4.90m mark.
The Australian performed in Zurich and set a new national record of 4.91m. Moon could no longer answer this: after an unsuccessful attempt at such a height, the American’s bar was set at 4.96m. However, she failed there twice, which is why she had to settle for second place. Moon’s compatriot Sandy Morris completed the podium.
This is how it goes
After the pole vault event at Zurich’s main train station, the meeting will be held as usual in Letzgrund on Thursday, where Ditaji, Mugenga Kamponji, Simon Ehamer and Jason Joseph, among others, will take part. You can watch it live on SRF from 7:30 p.m.
