Mahuchikh Breaks Long-Standing High Jump World Record with an Amazing 2.10m

Posted by: Watch Athletics

Yaroslava Mahuchikh shattered one of the oldest world records in high jump history by clearing 2.10 meters at the Paris Diamond League meeting on Sunday.

The world champion, Mahuchikh, expressed immense joy after establishing a new record height of 2.10 meters. "I felt coming into this competition that I might clear 2.07 meters, and perhaps even 2.10 meters," she stated. "Now, I've etched Ukraine's name into the annals of world athletics." The previous record of 2.09 meters, held by Bulgaria’s Stefka Kostadinova since 1987 in Rome, was now surpassed.

During the competition, both 22-year-old Mahuchikh and world indoor champion Nicola Olyslagers successfully cleared 2.01 meters on their second try. However, after Olyslagers faltered at 2.03 meters, Mahuchikh overcame the height, securing her win.

She subsequently set a Ukrainian record by clearing 2.07 meters and then successfully jumped 2.10 meters on her first attempt.
