Doha, Feb 20: China's Li Ling cleared 4.70 meters to set a new Asian record in the women's pole vault at the Asian Indoor Championships here.

"It is my first indoor campaign in 2016, I am satisified with the Asian record, and I hope for a better performance in the Portland Indoor World Championships," said Li, who ranked 9th in the Beijing World Championships last year at 4.60 meters.
