Bills Host Jenn's "Victory Tour"

Fredonia's Jenn Suhr will bring her Olympic gold medal "Victory Tour" to Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday. Suhr will compete in a pole vault competition n the fieldhouse at 10:15 before the Bills play the Patriots.  The event, which is expected to finish around 11:30, is open to the public.

Suhr will be introduced in the stadium just before the players take the field for the Bills-Patriots AFC East clash at 1 p.m.

The Bills game will be the third stop on the Suhr tour. On Friday night, she competed against a group of area men and women at her alma mater, Roberts Wesleyan College outside Rochester. Last Saturday, Suhr jumped in her hometown of Fredonia. She cleared 4.83 meters (15 feet, 10 inches), which is the world's best by a woman this year. She cleared 4.74 (15-7) to win the gold in London.

 "The goal of the tour is to share her Olympic experience and Olympic gold-medal with all of Western New York," said Rich Kenah, a spokesman for Suhr. "And Jenn figures there's no better way for people to understand the pole vault than to actually see it and experience it.

Suhr was honored today at the Roberts Wesleyan homecoming ceremonies. At the time of her graduation, she was the leading scorer in the history of women's basketball at the college.
