Christabel Nettey of Surrey, BC this weekend broke the Canadian indoor long jump record in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Following in the footsteps of Altis Korean sprint hurdlers Hye Lim Jung and Tae-Kyong Park who last week broke national indoor records for the 60m hurdles, Nettey’s jump of 6.62 metres exceeds the former Canadian indoor National record set by Tabia Charles in 2010 in Ithaca, New York, by two centimetres.

The Arizona State University graduate has built on the momentum which saw her become one of only two athletes in the NCAA in her senior year to jump 22ft.

Speaking on her move to Altis last year Nettey said: “I wanted the opportunity to continue building the momentum that I created at Arizona State and carry it over into my life as a pro athlete … I think that this Center offers me the most productive and efficient transition in order to create this success.”
