Brandon Starc is pictured above clearing the bar in the early rounds of the high jump.

He failed at 2.27m twice then cleared 2.30 first time for a season best. That gave him

sixth place. 2.33m proved too high (three failures) even though the year before he

had jumped 2.36m

At the 2015 World Championships Brandon cleared 2.31m to qualify for the final.

In the final he finished 12th. with 2.25m. At the 2018 Commonwealth Games he

jumped 2.32m to take the Gold medal.
