Women’s Pole Vault is one of the many exciting events on offer at the World Championships. This year, Anzhelika Sidorova, Ekateríni Stefanidi, Sandi Morris, Katie Nageotte, Alysha Newman are all top contenders for the title in Doha. However, our 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting tips point to Anzhelika Sidorov as the potential winner. However, this won’t sit well with Ekateríni Stefanidi who will put up a fight to defend her 2017 title.

The Women’s Pole Vault event at the 2019 World Championships in Doha will run from 27 to 29 September. According to our 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting preview, the following athletes stand the best chance of winning. Here’s how their odds of winning in Doha stand on Unibet Sportsbook:

2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships Betting Preview
Anzhelika Sidorova 6/4
Ekateríni Stefanidi 7/4
Sandi Morris 7/2
Katie Nageotte 15/2
Alysha Newman 15/2

Anzhelika Sidorova to conquer world stage according to our 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting predictions 

Sidorova currently stands the best chance of winning the Women’s Pole Vault in Doha according to Unibet Sportsbook. The Authorised Neutral Athlete has promising 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting odds of winning at 6/4. Consequently, Anzhelika Sidorova could soon win her first Pole Vault World Championships medal in Doha. 

In the past 2 years, Sidorova has picked up some impressive medals in other competitions making her a tough competitor. These honors include second place at the 2018 World Indoor Championships followed by a Continental Cup win. Additionally, she won the 2019 European Indoor Championships making her a favorable bet on the online sportsbooks in the UK

Ekateríni Stefanidi could still defend her 2017 win in spite of tough competition 

Greek athlete Stefanidi stands a considerable chance according to the online sportsbook news in the UK to retain her title. Unfortunately, Anzelika Sidorova could cause problems for Stefanidi in her title defending campaign. However, with 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting odds at 7/4, she could pull off a win in Doha. 

Since 2016, Stefanidi has made a name for herself in the discipline with 13 gold medals in all major IAAF competitions. Her most recent achievements are gold at the2019 Diamond League Final and the 2019 European Team Championships. 

2017 Women’s Pole Vault runner up Sandi Morris aims for gold in Doha 

Morris currently stands the third best chance of winning the Women’s Pole Vault at the Doha World Championships. Fortunately, the 2017 World Championships runner up can potentially upgrade to gold this year with odds at 7/2. Additionally, she will also enter the competition with the following respectable record: 

  • 2016 Summer Olympics- 2nd 
  • 2016 World Indoor Championships- 2nd 
  • 2017 World Championships- 2nd 
  • 2018 World Indoor Championships- 1st 

However, Sandi Morris has been quiet in 2019 with wins at the Diamond League in Rabat and the US National Championships. Consequently, our 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting predictions say Morris might struggle against the tough competition in Doha. However, Sandi Morris still has the potential to achieve a top 3 finish at the 2019 World Championships. 

World Championships debutante Katie Nageotte could be among medalists in Doha 

This year, the American athlete will be representing the US for the first time in the Word Outdoor Championships. Katie Nageotte (15/2) already has experience in the World Championships competing in the indoor competition in 2018. Unfortunately, it didn’t go as planned for the American who finished 5th. Fortunately, with a long list of hopefuls competing in Doha, Nageotte could strike big on her World Championships debut.

The atmosphere yesterday was awesome! The fans were incredible! It’s great anytime I get to score some points for Team USA (3rd, 4.70). Unfortunately some technical things led to inconsistencies for me. There was a plant box on the back of the runway that many of us either started on or hit during the run. My first push-off step after my skip was hitting it. We asked to have it covered the day before, as metal was exposed around it, and it would shift/bounce slightly, but that was refused. As my step would move back, I'd be landing differently on it (sometimes on the metal) allowing my focus to shift enough that it took longer than usual to find a rhythm. By the end I started to figure it out, but it was too late. I don’t want to make excuses, I should absolutely be better at dealing with things like this. But I'm human, I unfortunately let this get the better of me, and I want to share what we were experiencing. Heading back home to regroup and get some good training in before World Champs!! Last one best one 😈 #thematch #usa #teamusa #polevault #nike #trackandfield #bronze

However, her 2018 NACAC Championships win is her only major win to date. Consequently, with the other top contenders claiming medals in the Olympic Games, World Championships and more, Nageotte doesn’t stand as a favorable bet on Unibet Sportsbook. As a result, our 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting predictions don’t foresee a win for the American. Fortunately, Nageotte can potentially achieve a top 4 finish which is still a considerable result for the debutant to achieve.

Alysha Newman looks to step up following 7th place finish at the 2017 World Championships 

This year, Newman is among the top athletes favored to win at the Doha World Championships according to Unibet Sportsbook. However, among the top contenders, the Canadian stands a small chance of winning with odds at 15/2. Additionally, she will start the competition with a mere Diamond League (Paris) win and National Championships win this year. Consequently, our 2019 Women’s Pole Vault World Championships betting predictions foresee a top 5 finish for the athlete.
