Held in a tennis hall with 1500 spectators, Trost sailed smoothly over all heights up to and including 2.00m. The last of her opponents bowed out of the competition with the bar set at 1.94m, so Trost went straight up to 2.00m, clearing it on her first attempt as she had done with all of the other heights.
The jump equalled the world indoor age-19 best (set by Yelena Yelesina in 1990) and makes her the second-best Italian of all-time indoors behind Antonietta Di Martino's national indoor record of 2.04m.
She ended the competition by having two very decent attempts at 2.02m -- a height that would have broken Blanka Vlasic's meeting record of 2.01m from 2010.
"I'm amazed," said Trost, winner of the IAAF World youth title in 2009 and IAAF World junior gold in 2012. "I trained hard during the winter but I didn't know exactly what to expect from my competitions. Even 1.98m (in Udine earlier in January) was a great result for me. Two meters is a bonus and an unexpected result for many of us. Just to think that, last year I was jumping only around 1.92m, so this is a big jump forward.
"Of course, I was a bit scared of 2.02m because all heights with number '2' at the beginning are big in my eyes. But I tried to focus on the attempt and to see what happened. It was very emotional feeling here and the crowd helped me a lot by their support -- I felt like I am a part of this event."
