RUSSIAN pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva broke her own world record once again, clearing 4.93 metres at a Super Grand Prix meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The 23-year-old Olympic champion, who has set herself the target of beating Sergei Bubka's haul of 35 world records, added another centimetre to her previous record jump — set in Brussels last September.

The former gymnast has now broken the world record on 14 occasions — seven times outdoors and seven indoors.
