2009- Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia set the World Record for the Indoor Pole Vault and became the first woman to crack the 5 meter barrier indoors.  February 15th has been a good day in Yelena's career as she broke the Indoor record twice in 2004 on that date and once more the next year.  Overall, Yelena has broken the Pole Vault world records 27 times!  She has pushed the outdoor mark from 4.82m to 5.06m and the indoor one from 4.81m to her current indoor world record of 5m.
