Her performance came eight months after she underwent surgery on her injured left hand.

Uy’s stint was good enough for fifth place in the tournament that saw three Americans finishing in the podium led by Morgann LeLeux, who reached 4.60m. Kortney Ross (4.50m) and Olivia Gruver (4.50m), came in second and third, respectively.

The 25-year-old Uy is also the record-holder in the Southeast Asian Games after posting 4.25m in 2019.
