NEW YORK -- Jenn Suhr, the world's No. 1 ranked pole vaulter, has entered the strong field for the Millrose Games.

Suhr won the event at Millrose in 2009. She took the silver medal at the 2008 Games in Beijing.

Suhr, a native of Fredonia, N.Y., says Tuesday she is looking forward to vaulting in the Armory.

Suhr is one of five women in this year's Millrose field who have cleared 15 feet.

The Millrose Games are moving uptown to the Armory after nearly a century at Madison Square Garden and will be held Feb. 11.
