The Bahama's Donald Thomas was the unexpected winner when he won the gold medal by jumping 2.35m at his first attempt. Sweden's olympic champion Stefan Holm failed to clear this height - his best of 2.33 was good enough only for fourth. Jaroslav Rybakov of Russia won his third World Championships silver medal. Kyriakos Ioannou's bronze was the first medal ever for Cyprus at any World Championships.
