Ukraine’s Mahuchikh soars to world championship victory in women’s high jump

Yaroslava Mahuchikh of Ukraine won the women’s high jump at the World Athletics Championships, securing her country’s only gold medal. This victory is particularly impressive considering the challenges Mahuchikh has faced due to the war in her homeland. Forced to leave her hometown of Dnipro, the 21-year-old cleared 2.01 meters to claim her first world outdoor title. Previously, she had finished in second place twice. Despite missing three attempts at 2.07 meters, Mahuchikh expressed her pride in winning the gold medal for her country and her eagerness to share it with her coach. Eleanor Patterson, the world number one ranked athlete, took silver with a clearance of 1.99 meters, while Nicola Olyslagers, also from Australia, secured bronze on a countback. The president of World Athletics, Sebastian Coe, acknowledged the difficulties faced by Ukrainian athletes who have been forced to live and train abroad due to the conflict with Russia. Mahuchikh, who has been training in various countries including Germany, previously dedicated her world indoor title in 2022 to Ukraine. Coe expressed his sympathy for the situation and reaffirmed his stance on Russia and Belarus, both of which are banned from athletics competitions. He emphasized the stark contrast between his own experiences as an athlete and the challenges faced by Ukrainian athletes, describing the situation as intolerable.
