Another Moment in Ohio HS History - Eleanor Montgomery

Below is a picture of Eleanor Montgomery (Cleveland John Adams) clearing a bar with the old straddle technique. She won the National AAU title as a SOPHOMORE at Welcome Stadium in 1963 with a 5' 8" clearance. She placed 8th at the Tokyo Olympics while still a HS student.

Her bio is quite impressive: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eleanor_Montgomery

Who wants to make a bet she might still hold the Ohio girls' record if she'd been using the Fosbury Flop (or the Debbie Brill Bend) during her day?
