Stanford grad Stefanidi vaults to season best in France

Stanford grad and Olympic gold medalist Katerina Stefanidi won the pole vault at the Meeting Lievin in France on Tuesday, her 18th consecutive victory.

DyeStat's Erik Boal reported that Stefanidi, also the reigning World champion, cleared a season-best 15-10 on her second attempt. It was her third title in seven days in France. She also won in Paris and Rouen.

Stefanidi, who won gold at the 2016 Rio Games competing for Greece, remains in striking distance of the record winning streak of 23, held by Russia's Yelena Isinbayeva.

The former NCAA champion is expected to compete at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Scotland on Feb. 25 before competing in the World Indoor Championships in England on March 3.
