The 100th Millrose Games, the second stop in USA Track & Field's Visa
Championship Series, will be held Feb. 2 at Madison Square Garden beginning
at 5:45 p.m.
The leading U.S. women's pole vaulter last season, Stuczynski won eight
events in 2006 and finished the season ranked #6 in the world. The
third-place finisher at the 2006 World Athletics Final, Stuczynski posted a
personal best winning clearance of 4.68 meters/15 feet 4.25 inches on
January 14 in Ypsilanti, Michigan. She posted the six highest clearances by
an American during the 2006 indoor season, and also cleared the four tallest
heights by an American during last year's outdoor campaign.
Stuczynski has already cleared the 15-foot barrier twice this indoor season,
winning the USATF Holiday Classic on December 30 in Rochester, N.Y.
(4.58m/15-.25) and also capturing the Cornell Open in Ithaca, N.Y., on
January 7 (4.61m/15-1.50). Both performances bettered the previous women's
pole vault records for those facilities.
Additional Millrose headliners already announced to compete are 4-time
Wanamaker Mile champion Bernard Lagat, world championships medalist Craig
Mottram, reigning World Indoor shot put champion Reese Hoffa and world
record holder and Olympic champion pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva. Also
competing at Millrose will be Tirunesh Dibaba, the reigning double World
Champion at 5,000 and 10,000 meters who will be headlining the NYRR Women's
3000m Run, the first race over a mile for women in Millrose history.
