Neal leaps to DODEA-Pacific record in long jump
CAMP HUMPHREYS, South Korea – Unbeaten throughout the course of this season and already the holder of the Far East meet record in the long jump, Alyse Neal on Saturday added a northwest Pacific record to her resume.
The Seoul American senior jumped 5.7 meters during Saturday’s DODEA-Korea “last chance” Far East qualifier. Neal shattered the record of 5.42, first set in 2006 by Amelia Clark of Jakarta International and matched in 2010 by Smriti Sridhar of International School Manila.
Neal topped her own personal best of 5.3, which stands as the current Far East meet mark; she set that last May 23 at Yokota.
