Two podium finishes for Levern Spencer

Saint Lucia’s Levern Spencer earned two podium finishes on the first two legs of her 2013 European tour, taking first and third in France and the Czech Republic on Saturday and Monday, respectively.

 At the Meeting National de Bonneuil sur Marne, the five-time World Championships qualifier and two-time Olympian cleared 1.91m to win. She came in at 1.83m, took two attempts to go over at 1.87 and then cleared the winning height on her first try and setting a venue record.Olympic finalist Melanie Melfort, France’s top jumper, went out at 1.91, and Levern went on to attempt 1.95, which would have been an A qualifying mark for this year’s World Championships in Moscow, Russia.

Prague’s Juliska Stadium is the home of the army club Dukla Praha, and conditions at the Josef Odlozil Memorial were not so friendly. Levern could manage just 1.83m to finish joint third.She shared that spot with Sweden’s Sofie Skoog, both having cleared the height on the first attempt, after needing two trials at 1.81m. Bulgaria’s Mirela Demireva cleared a season-best 1.86m, and Uzbekistan’s Nadezdha Dusanova won the meet with that same height.

  1. Great work by an outstanding St. Lucian athlete. Even with the stress associated with sponsorship.
