That is an impressive mark for a 13yo girl.
I am 13yo now, and when I was 12yo I jumped 1.50m and 1.49m(x2)(Hopefully someone can convert for me!) At the time I was 1.52m tall, so I think that my High Jump was pretty impressive, as I nearly jumped over my own head, and the leading marks of children in the country at U13 level in the GBR jumped around 1.55-1.65m and they were between 1.60-1.85m tall. Some were gigantic!.This was last and I was undefeated throughout the meetings that my club competed at. However I was only ranked =8th in the country(GBR). The highest that year was 1.60m I believe.
If I sound like I am gloating, please forgive me, but I feel proud of my achievements.
