St. Lucia’s World ranked highjumper Levern Spencer made a winning start to her 2019 indoor season, by defeating a field of 8 other jumpers at her season opener in the US.
Competing last Saturday January 19th, at the Clemson Invitational in South Carolina, Spencer, the region’s premiere highjumper for well over a decade, soared over the bar at 1.91m to eclipse the old facilities record of 1.90m which she previously shared with American record holder Chaunte Lowe. This performance resulted in not just giving her the gold medal, but making her the sole holder of the facilities record.
The veteran highjumper is in the running for her fifteenth Sportswoman Of The Year Title when the National Sports Awards Ceremony is held on Saturday February 16, 2019 at the Royalton Hotel. She will later be heading to Europe for a few competitions before shifting her attention to the outdoor season with special focus on the Panam Games where she is the defending champion, and the World Championships scheduled for the months of September and October this year,
