Fabiana Murer

Fabiana de Almeida Murer (born 16 March 1981[1]) is a Brazilian pole vaulter. She holds the South American record in the event with an indoor best of 4.82 m and an outdoor best of 4.85 m, making her the fourth highest vaulter ever. She won the gold medal at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics, at the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships and also won at the 2007 Pan American Games. Murer represented Brazil at the 2008 Summer Olympics. She is a four-time South American Champion with wins in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2011. Murer is coached by both the Ukrainian Vitaly Petrov, who managed the world record holders Sergei Bubka and Yelena Isinbayeva, and her husband, Élson Miranda de Souza, a former vaulter himself.

Career

Murer set an outdoor personal best of 4.80 metres in June 2008 in [3][4]

She improved her outdoor record to 4.82 m in June 2009 at the Troféu Brasil Caixa de Atletismo meet. She made the jump en route to winning her fifth Brazilian championships in the event, breaking the area record for the eleventh time and placing joint sixth in the all-time lists.[5] She competed at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics in Berlin but she failed to match her early season form, finishing with a best clearance of 4.55 m.[6] She improved to 4.60 m at the 2009 IAAF World Athletics Final, winning the silver medal.

At the 2010 IAAF World Indoor Championships, Murer took advantage of Yelena Isinbayeva's failure at 4.75 m and continued at 4.80 m, clearing first time and winning her first global championships.[7] Murer improved her indoor mark to 4.83 m at the Grand Prix in Birmingham, United Kingdom.[8] She further improved her outdoor record in June to 4.85 m at the 2010 Ibero-American Championships in San Fernando, Spain. This mark placed her as the fourth greatest pole vaulter on the all-time lists, and she then attempted 4.93 m, but failed three times.[9]

She was dominant on the 2010 IAAF Diamond League circuit, winning three out of the six diamond race events. Her vault of 4.81 m to win at the Weltklasse Zurich meeting made her the inaugural Diamond League winner of the women's pole vault. She was selected to represent the Americas team at the 2010 IAAF Continental Cup and although she won the bronze medal, her mark of 4.50 m was far from her year's best.[10] She retained her national title at the Troféu Brasil de Atletismo, vaulting 4.70 m to bring a close to her season.[11]

Murer celebrating her title at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics

In 2011, Murer became the first Brazilian to win the IAAF World Championship, vaulting 4.85 m at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics in Daegu.[12][13]

Despite high expectations for the 2012 Summer Olympics, Murer did not qualify for the finals. She failed on the first two attempts for 4.55 m, and gave up on the last complaining about unfavorable wind conditions.[14]

In 2014, Murer won the second Diamond League circuit, winning four out of the seven diamond race events.[15]

Up until 2015, Murer's post-Olympics performances were underwhelming. Then she earned a silver medal at both the 2015 Pan American Games and the 2015 World Championships in Athletics, surpassed only by the Cuban Yarisley Silva. In the latter, Murer reached again her personal best of 4.85 m.[16][17]
