Bjorn OTTO - Germany - Bronze medal at 2013 World Championship.

Like four of the other finalist Otto Bjorn cleared 5.82m in the men's pole vault but he

won the bronze medal because he had fewer failures en route (one at 5.75m) than either

Brad Walker or Malte Mohr.  Champion Raphael Holzdeppe won his gold medal on the same ruling.

A  6.01m vaulter at the time (PB set in 2012) Bjorn the year before was the Olympic silver medalist.
