Lavern Spencer at IAAF Championships 2017

This time around Lavern Spencer was unable to equal or better her feat in the high jump event after crashing out of the competition.She opened the competition clearing 1.80 meters, 1.85 meters and 1.89 meters all on her first try. However, she was unable to negotiate 1.92 meters and ended up sixth in Group A with  a best attempt of 1.89 meters.

In Group B seven competitors cleared 1.92 meters including Ruth Beitia the gold medalist from the Rio Olympics who cleared the bar on her first attempt. As a result Levern just missed out on the final twelve as she finished thirteenth overall.Too close for comfort one may add, but I still think she has the talent and endurance to remain in the sports for some years to come.
