Ganna MELNYCHENKO - Ukraine - 2013 World Heptathlon Champion in Moscow.

Ganna MELNYCHENKO is pictured above during the long jump of the 2013 World Championship

in Moscow.  She set a new personal best of 6586 points to win her first major international title.

As the results below show the first five women all achieved personal best score for the two day event.


Ganna's colour is due to the reflection of the sand into which she is about to land !


Some spell her name Hanna Melnichenko and her married name of Hanna Kasyanova

after she married Ukrainian decathlete Oleksiy Kasyanov
