Yelena ISINBAYEVA - Russia - 2013: Third World Championship win for World Record holder.

Yelena Isinbayeva salutes the Russian crowd in Moscow as she takes back the World Championship pole vault title she won in 2005 and 2007.


After securing the title she then attempted 5.07 to better her own World Record of 5.06

set in Zurich in 2009, but failed.


It was Russia's second women's  Gold medal of the day having seen Olympic Champion Elena Lashmanova win the 20k walk in the morning.
