Anzhelika Sidorova smashed her personal best by 4 centimeters, clearing 4.95 meters to win the pole vault.

Sidorova and Sandi Morris of the United States both cleared every height up to 4.90 at the first attempt before dueling at 4.95. After Morris missed her third attempt, knocking the bar with her chin, she clapped for Sidorova during the Russian’s run-up. Morris also won silver at the 2016 Olympics and 2017 world championships.
