Yelena Isinbayeva delights fans in Moscow

Yelena Isinbayeva, the greatest woman pole vaulter of all time, thrilled a partisan home crowd roaring her 

every jump when she landed the third and probably last world title of her illustrious career on Tuesday.

The Russian, twice Olympic champion and world outdoor record holder, was the only vaulter to clear 4.89 


It was a season's best leap for the 31-year-old, the first woman to clear the revered five metres barrier, who 

said before the championships that she would retire.

American Olympic champion Jenn Surh took silver and Cuban Yarisley Silva bronze. Both failed at 4.89 

after clearing 4.82.

After a nervous start when she failed with her first attempt after entering the competition at 4.65, a measure 

of her confidence with her rivals already up and running, Isinbayeva grew in stature.

With a chorus of "Yelena Yelena" reverberating around the Luzhniki stadium, the biggest crowd of a poorly 

attended championships so far, each clearance was greeted by a cacophony of approval.
