Overview by IAAF  
Of the big four favourites, only Barshim had any failures before 2.33, but this failure (at 2.29) proved decisive when he and four others all failed three times at 2.36. Of those five, three men had no earlier misses. So Drouin, Bondarenko and Zhang commenced three-way jumpoff, the first time this had happened at a World Championship. All three failed on a fourth attempt at 2.36, but then Drouin cleared 2.34, leaving Bondarenko and Zhang in a tie for second when they missed at that height. “I hoped to make a medal,” said the Canadian, “but hoping for and making it actually happen are two different things. I was first on the line-up [to jump], that was good to keep the pressure on the field.” For the first time a jump of 2.29 did not guarantee a place in the final.
