This weekend saw two events on the continent result in an American record in the polevault, or did it?
As well the one hour run World Records for women and men were surpassed.
Also not to be overlooked. The women's half marathon record for races with women only was
beaten on Sunday in Prague by Peres Jepchirchir of Kenya in 1 hour 5 min. and 35 seconds.
This surpasses the previous record set by Ethiopean Netsanet Gudeta in 1 hour 6 min. 11 seconds.
Our first report comes from Bill Schnier and Bruce Kritzler who witnessed the polevault from Lausanne on their computer or tv screens.
