    According to http://age-records.125mb.com/ the world record for a:

    9 year old is Avery Lewis (USA) at 4.68m - 15' 4 1/4
    10 year old is Tia Jones (USA) at 5.09m - 16' 8 1/2
    11 year old is Avery Lewis (USA) at 5.48m - 17' 11 3/4

    She'd be #6 in Ontario among bantams (U14) last year.
    This doesn't go directly to the list , just select an area and age group.

    I counted 5 in Ontario, 5 in BC and 2 in Alberta who jumped farther among U14s. Nobody in any other provinces including Quebec. Pretty amazing for a 9 year old!

    Following up on this for those who might be interested. Today, my daughter jumped 14'01" (4.29m) and set a new conference record by 6 inches:

    Apparently her PB of 15' doesn't count as such (though it is listed as her seed mark at that link), because records are only recognized at championship meets. Anyway, super proud of her either way!

    True, but the difficult/sad thing is when one grandchild excels at every sport he tries and his younger, bigger brother did not get the athletic gene.

    Five or six years ago the USATF dropped the age group names in favor of the ages. As shown in the results linked, the old group names persist. The groups for 2019 (with their old names) are:

    Age Division Birth Year
    8 & Under (previously Sub-bantam or Gremlin) 2011+
    9 - 10 (previously Bantam) 2009-2010
    11 - 12 (previously Midget) 2007-2008
    13 - 14 (previously Youth) 2005-2006
    15 - 16 (previously Intermediate) 2003-2004
    17 - 18 (previously Young) 2001-2002

    In a previous post JRM indicated his daughter was age 9. She was born in 2009 and will turn 10 late in 2019.

    That is exactly the situation with our two grandsons. The good thing is that the younger, non-athletic kid has a shitload of other talents and has no athletic desire.

    Hey lonewolf, it just occurred to me that we might be hijacking this thread. Sorry JRM, this is your kid's hour, she deserves it.
