American pole vaulter Sandi Morris came in second place with a season-best of 4.90 meters, while Anzhelika Sidorova was able to clear 4.95 meters on her third and final try, which was a world-leading mark and a gold medal clearance for the Russian athlete. This marks Sidorova’s first world championship win, and earlier this year, she won the gold at the European Indoor Championships. Last year, she won the silver at the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham.
