Little-noticed until now: Isett sets M70 WR in shadow of Jenn Suhr
Don and Jenn, just two peas in a record pod at USA nationals.
Unbeknownst to the world (and me), Jenn Suhr
wasn’t the only world-record setter at USA indoor nationals last weekend. So was 73-year-old Don Isett.
He writes: “I competed in the 2013 USA Indoor Track and Field Championships in a Masters Pole Vault Exhibition event. I broke the world indoor mark with a jump of 10 feet, 8 inches (3.25 meters). The application for a world indoor record were filled out and filed. There were eight masters vaulters in the exhibition event. The results
are on the USATF web site. I was lucky enough to get a picture with Jenn Suhr,
who broke the women’s indoor world record.” She should have bowed to you and said: “I am not worthy! I am not worthy.” But great to see y’all together. Listed M70 WR: Terry Cannon’s
3.23 (10-7) from 2008.
