London: Russian pole vault queen Yelena Isinbaeva took the bronze at the Olympic pole vault final Monday.

Isinbaeva was looking to become the first woman to win a track and field gold in an individual event three times straight.

The two-time Olympic champion failed to clear 4.75 metres twice, then missed 4.80, to leave America`s Jenn Suhr and Cuba`s Yarisley Silva to fight it out for the gold.
