Canadian Mark Boswell clears the bar to win gold in the Men's High Jump.
Canadian Mark Boswell has won the gold medal in the Men's High Jump after clearing a mighty 2.26m.
At 29, Boswell is the second-oldest man in the field, but he showed no sign of ageing as he backed up his 2002 Manchester Games gold medal. He was the only competitor to jump the height, clearing comfortably on his first attempt.
Silver medallist Martyn Bernard of England jumped a season's best 2.26m on his third attempt at that height - only one centimetre off his personal best.
Cypriot Kyriacos Ioannou put his country on the Athletics medal board when he won the bronze medal.
Ioannou cleared 2.23m easily but found it too difficult to get over the bar at 2.26m. The Cypriot had cleared 2.27m three times in 2005.
After his win, gold medallist Boswell said “It was hard work - I had to focus to get the job done.”
Track and Field competition runs until 25 March.
