Mariya LASITSKENE - Russia - 2017 women's high jump World champion.

Mariya Lasitskene clears the bar during the early stages of the final of the women's
high jump competition. She retained her World Championship title with a
leap of 2.03m - compared with her 2.01m winning height of two years earlier.

She competed under a different name and  a different "affiliation".

Russia was not invited to the Championships because of their Government's
sponsored doping policy.
