World’s Best Pole Vaulter – Russia’s Yelena Isinbaeva

Olympic gold medalist and World Record Holder

On 22 July 2005 Yelena Isinbaeva became the first woman to clear the historic 5.00 meter (16.4 feet) barrier in pole vault.

At the age of 27 Isinbaeva has been a nine-time major champion (Olympic, World outdoor and indoor champion and European outdoor and indoor champion).

Isinbaeva’s current world records are 5.06 m outdoors, a record Isinbaeva set in Zurich on August 28, 2009, and 5.00 m indoors, a record set at the Donetsk indoor meeting on 15 February 2009. The former was Isinbaeva’s twenty-seventh world record.
