Dragila breaks world record in pole vault

BOSTON (AP) -- Stacy Dragila broke the world indoor record in the pole vault Sunday by clearing 15 feet, 8 1/4 inches at the U.S. Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Dragila had already won the title at 14-5. She then cleared 15-1 as a warmup before going for the record of 15-7 3/4 by Russian Svetlana Feofanova.

Dragila missed on her first attempt at the record, and on the second she grazed the bar. But she popped up from the mat, saw that it hadn't fallen, and raised a fist in triumph.

After failing three times at 16 feet, she stood on the mat and blew kisses to the crowd.

Dragila won the gold medal at the Sydney Olympics, and she holds the outdoor world record of 15-9 1/4.

She held the indoor record before Feofanova broke it several times, most recently Feb. 21.
