Willms advances to finals at World Championships

MONCTON, CANADA (KWWL) -- Former Dike-New Hartford track star Hannah Willms has advanced to the high jump finals at the IAAF Junior Track and Field World Championships in Canada.

Willms, the Iowa state record holder, went a perfect 4 for 4 on her jumps, ultimately clearing 5' 11 1/4" to advance to Sunday's final.  In all, 12 jumpers will compete for the top spot.

Only 6 of the 12 finalists, including Willms, went perfect on the four heights during the first day of high jump competition.
