Ukhov wins men’s high jump
Ivan Ukhov won the men’s high jump at the Games of the XXX Olimpiad in London. He cleared 2.38m.
"When I came to the stadium this morning, I just wanted to jump," Ukhov explained to IAAF. "After the first jump, it came very easy for me. I have not seen my wife and daughter for two months. I will call her, and my wife, and grandmother. I will catch the first plane back because I'm missing them."
2008 Olympic Champion Andrey Sinov placed 12th with 2.25m.
