Fourth for Frenkel

March 10, 2011

Israeli high jumper Danielle Frenkel, 23, achieved her best international performance so far after finishing fourth at the European Indoor Championships in Paris.

Frenkel scaled all heights up to 1.92m at her first attempt, but failed narrowly at the next height of 1.96m.

A leap of 1.94m in the qualifying round set an Israeli record and achieved qualification for this year's World Championships in South Korea.

Frenkel said: "I worked hard to reach this moment and it gives me a lot of motivation to achieve more."
