PALM DESERT, Sep. 12, 2016 – A fractured wrist almost kept Sandi Morris off the U.S. Olympic team this summer. But after winning a Rio silver, she became the second woman ever to clear 5.00 meters (16-4 3/4) to win the pole vault in the final Diamond League meet of the year last Friday.
She was the lead story on a nice meet for the U.S. tracksters, including two Diamond race winners and a new American Record in the 5,000 meters. Get the details in your all-in-one briefing on the top events in international sport:
