Silnov improves to 2.37

21.08.2006

Andrey Silnov won the mens high jump with a World season lead at the Herculis 2006 - IAAF Super Grand Prix held in Monaco yesterday.
Perfect through 2.28, Silnov, the 21-year-old European champion needed a third try at 2.31 to remain in the competition, and a pair at 2.33 before securing the victory over Swede Stefan Holm, who topped out after his first attempt clearance at 2.31. His world leader came with a clean but close third try as well, forgivable in this case competing just 24 hours after his victory at the Birmingham International Match yesterday.

Ive only slept four hours, said a smiling Silnov, after adding a centimetre to his previous personal best and world leading 2.36 from Gothenburg. I have to be very happy with this personal best.

Yuliya Chizhenko won the womens 1500m clocking 4:00.32 minutes, when Tatyana Tomashova finished second in less than 1 second. Lyubov Ivanova was second in the womens 3000mSt with 9:23.61.
