Posted by David Brannan on Jan 8, 2018 at 1:16 PM

Jenn Suhr is delaying retirement in order to give the new Altius Hybrid pole a whirl. She opened her season by jumping 4.81 ( 15’10”) on her first attempt!  Her husband, Rick Surn said, "Jenn is in crazy great shape and just PR ‘d on short run. By the way that is an indoor world record for her age!"

Jenn Suhr has been working with Altius engineers developing a new type of hybrid pole, called the "Suhr Adrenaline Pole".  The pole was recently used by Erica Ellis who set the High School Junior Record 14’1.5” in early Janurary, who is coached by Rick and Jenn Suhr. The jump by Erica Ellis matches the best jump by a college athlete thus far this year.

The following interview goes into detail about the new Altius Suhr Adrenaline Pole.
