Inika McPherson - U.S.A. - 9th. in high jump at 2017 World Championships.

One failure  at 1.88m cost Inika McPherson a share of seventh place at the 2017 World Championships.

She set a personal best winning the 2014 USA Championship of 2.00 metres,

after which she was tested positive for benzoylecgonine, the main metabolite of cocaine and subsequently

accepted a 21-month doping ban until March 2016.  That height was deleted and 1.96 remained

her legal best.  She likes tatoos !
