Michal BALNER - Czech Republic - Seventh in poe vault at 2015 World Championships.

Renaud Lavillenie, Piotr Lisek and Paweł Wojciechowski all cleared 5.80m first time

and then failed three times at 5.90. They were therefore all equal and each was

awarded a bronze medal.  Menaldo took three attempts before he cleared 5.80m.

Michal cleared 5.70 to qualify for the final.
