La bicampeona rusa Yelena Isinbayeva perdió la oportunidad de ganar por tercera vez consecutiva la medalla de oro del salto con garrocha de los Juegos Olímpicos. En la gran final, falló su tercer intento en los 4.75 metros y se conformó con la medalla de bronce.

Jennifer Suhr de Estados Unidos ganó el oro y la cubana Yarisley Silva la plata.

La atleta ha batido la marca mundial de la especialidad en 28 ocasiones: 15 al aire libre y 13 en pista cubierta, pero este fue el fin de su carrera olímpica.

El último récord que batió fue en el pasado mes de febrero, en Estocolmo, Suecia.
