Ukhov entered the competition as hot favourite after posting a world-leading 2.39 in Cheboksary, Russia, in March, and justified the tag by clearing five consecutive heights with just one fail.

Kynard cleared 2.33 before knocking the bar over at 2.36, 2.38 and 2.40.

Derek Drouin of Canada and Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar shared the bronze with 2.29.
