Suhr Returns To Olympics After Pole Vault Win
Suhr, the 2008 Olympic trials champion, won the silver medal in Beijing, finishing behind Russian world-record holder Yelena Isinbayeva.
Suhr,a Fredonia native, holds the American record in the pole vault, but last year she struggled with fatigue and was diagnosed with Celiac disease.
Suhr was inducted into the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame in 2009.
