Murer vaults 4.70m at Brazilian championships

Fabiana Murer’s 4.70m vault on Sunday (19) highlighted the 29th “ Troféu Brasil de Atletismo”, the national club competition that serves as national championships. The “Troféu” took place in São Paulo from 15-19 September on the new track “Adhemar Ferreira da Silva” of the Olympic Centre.

Murer, this year’s World indoor champion in the Pole Vault, closed her 2010 season with a decisive victory over Joana Costa (4.15m). This was the sixth national title for the 29-year-old from Campinas, who this year had improved her South American record to 4.85m at the Ibero-American Championships in San Fernando, Spain (4 June).

“I wanted to end the season with a good performance at the Troféu in front of my family, and the fans. My coach (Élson Miranda) was looking for a Vault over 4.70, and I was able to please him with that,” said Murer who ended the competition with three misses at 4.90m.

Keila Costa, the bronze medallist in the Long Jump at the World Indoor Championships in Doha earlier this year, scored a good double, winning the Long Jump with a 6.61m leap and the Triple Jump with a wind-assisted 14.03w.

 (13.79/1.0). “I liked my performance in the long jump”, said Costa, despite three fouls in the final. She also produced a wind-legal 13.79m in the Triple Jump.

Veteran Discus thrower Elisângela Adriano, 38, obtained her 14th national title in the event with a 57.69m best effort. At the same event, Ronald Julião, one of the best Brazilian athletes of the season, won the men’s title at 60.62m, a championship record. In July, Julião threw a 63.09m national record in Madrid. Here he also won the Shopt Put with an 18.69m PB.

The sprints where affected by a strong head wind and cold temperatures, but in spite of that, Ana Cláudia Lemos Silva and Jefferson Liberato Lucindo obtained fine doubles at 100/200m.

Lucindo ran 10.39 and 20.75,  both PBs, while Lemos Silva clocked 11.53 and 23.21. The latter recently improved the South American 100m record, clocking 11.15 on 4 September in São Paulo.

In preparation for the 2010 ING New York City Marathon, which he has won previously in 2006 and 2008, Marílson Gomes dos Santos took the 10,000m title in 28:44.59, in a race he dominated entirely (14:31.8 at 5000m).
