Andrey Silnov: 2.38 in London

26.07.2008

Andrey Silnov achieved a World lead of 2.38m in the mens high jump at yesterdays Aviva London Grand Prix. Yelena Isinbayeva won the womens pole vault clearing 4.93m.
My form is coming slightly at the wrong time. I should have jumped like this in the Russian trials, said Silnov, who finished fourth at his countrys championships with 2.30. I am very happy to win this event and even happier to get a personal best. [Next will be] the Russian record maybe?

I am very disappointed because I really felt I could jump a world record today, said Isinbayeva. I was so close and I really wanted to do it. Its my third competition in a row and Im a little bit tired.
