Sakari Famous joint 15th in NCAA high jump final

Sakari Famous was fifteenth in the NCAA high jump final

Sakari Famous completed a stellar season in college athletics by finishing joint fifteenth in the high jump final at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon, on Saturday evening.

The McNeese State junior, who came into the final with an ambition of placing in the top eight to be named a First-Team All-American, could make only two clearances at the site of the upcoming world championships next month.

Famous, who has a personal best of 6ft 0½in, soared over 5-7¾ and 5-9¾ at the first attempt before having three refusals at the next height (5-10¾) and exiting the 24-strong competition.

Lamara Distin, a junior from Texas A&M, was a decisive winner at 6-4¾ after making every jump before three misses at 6-6¾ when everyone else was out of contention.

In second place was Middle Tennessee State senior Abigail Kwarteng on 6-3½ and Rachel Glenn, a South Carolina sophomore, was third on 6-1¼.
