Jenn Suhr, the 2012 London Olympic champion American pole vaulter, finished his career at the age of 40. Sir is a 17-time American Champion and won the World Indoor titles in 2016.

Sir started pole vaulting in 2004 after playing basketball for many years. The American won her first national title within a year. In 2008, she finished second only to Russia’s Yelena Isinbaeva at both the World Indoor Championships and the Beijing Olympics.

Four years later, she won the 4.75 meter high Olympic gold medal in London. She became the world champion indoors in 2016 after Sir had to win another silver medal behind Isinbaeva at the 2013 Outdoor World Cup in Moscow.

“It was an unforgettable journey,” Suhr posted on Instagram, stating that she was standing still.
