Katie Nageotte Reviews Gold Medal Winning Effort At Worlds

Ohio native Katie Nageotte added to her international hardware count on Sunday at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon. 

Nageotte, a 2009 graduate of Olmsted Falls and the reigning Olympic champion, struck pole vault gold once again by successfully clearing 4.85 meters (15-9).

Her mark stands as a tie for world lead this year, a distinction she shares with American teammate Sandi Morris, who joined Nageotte on the podium in Eugene with her silver medal winning performance. 

View the post-event media scrum video above, where Nageotte details the lead-up to Worlds as the most challenging period of her pole vaulting career and the satisfaction of earning gold just two months after she found herself seriously considering retirement from the sport.
