Jenn Stuczynski wins indoor pole vault

Jenn Stuczynski won the indoor pole vault at a competition at Reggie Lewis Center during the Reebok Boston Indoor Games with a vault of 4.60 meters.

“I try not to look at it like that [a buildup to Beijing],” said Stuczynski. “It’s a meet. If something goes wrong, I don’t want to think of it as the way to Beijing. It’s the way to Beijing when it’s summertime. Indoor is a lot of fun. Outdoor I take more serious.”

“[With the first two attempts], I was just trying too hard,” said Stuczynski. “I take it like golf. Sometimes you swing as hard as you can and you don’t know where it’s going to go . . . The third one I just wasn’t deep enough into the pad. I almost tried to save it. In warm-ups, I felt good. After 15-1, I felt I started to get a little tired on the runway. I have to build up my endurance. All in all, in the end, I was pretty satisfied.”
