Jan KUDLICKA - Czech Republic - Pole vault silver medal at 2016 European Championships.

Jan Kudlička failed to share the gold medal with Robert Sobera because Jan failed

5.60 at his first attempt. They both failed 5.70 three times and then World Record holder

Renaud Lavillenie stepped up to "win" the title,  having just sat and watched until then.


He failed all three attempts at 5.75 !!! 


5.75 was the height Jan Kudlička cleared at the Rio Olympics the following

month to take 4th place in the final. See below
