Bogdan BONDARENKO - 2nd at 2015 World Championships in high jump.

Defending champion Bohdan Bondarenko's expression says it all.   Are well,  I tried but...

With four jumpers all clearing 2.33 and the all four failing at 2.36, the method used to decide the winner was for

them to try and clear 2.34 (the three medalists infact had failed at 2.36 four times each to find a winner).

Derek Droiun was the only one to jump the lower 2.34 and took the gold medal.

Bohdan has taken just two jumps to reach and clear 2.33 whereas Derek and Zhang

had taken four - with none of them failing any height.  One failure by Mutaz meant he could not win a medal.
