High Jump, Men

Date14 – 16 August 2016
LocationEstádio Olímpico João Havelange, Engenho de Dentro, Rio de Janeiro
Participants44 from 28 countries

The high jump had been one of the top events on the European circuit in the past few years, with several jumpers going over 2.40. Canadian Derek Drouin came in with the best competitive record, as he was the reigning World Champion, Commonwealth Games Champion, and Pan American Games Champion. Qatar’s Mutaz Essa Barshim and Ukrainian Bohdan Bondarenko had had the best series of marks internationally, and another challenger in Rio was American Erik Kynard, the 2012 Olympic silver medalist.

Those four cleared 2.33 in the final, along with Ukraine’s Andriy Protsenko and Britain’s Robbie Grabarz, leaving six to contest the medals. Drouin and Barshim cleared 2.36 on their first attempt, while Bondarenko passed to 2.38. He missed two attempts at that height and, after Drouin cleared on his first attempt, Bondarenko took another attempt at 2.40 but failed, settling for the bronze medal. Barshim could not clear 2.38 and won silver, as Drouin added another gold medal.
