world Women High Jump History.

Venue: Athens Olympic Stadium, Marousi. Capp.: 72,000. 38 competitors from 27 nations.
The top two were generally considered to be Cloete, the 2003 World Champion, and Slesarenko, the 2004 World Indoor Champion. Others highly rated were Chicherova, and the 1.90 tall Blanka Vlašić (CRO). Three jumpers made the final on the countback rules after clearing 1.92, while the other nine were successful at 1.95. The final was tougher, with only six clearing 1.96, while Vlašić – suffering from a respiratory infection – was unable to go higher than 1.89. Of those successful at 1.96, Cloete and Slesarenko were the only jumpers without a failure to that point. They continued in the same vein until 2.04, with only Styopina for company. The Ukrainian, in fourth place behind Acuff after 1.99, then cleared 2.02 first time for the bronze medal. Like her, Cloete was unable to jump higher than 2.02, but Slesarenko easily cleared 2.04 and 2.06 first time, the latter for an Olympic record. She then had one close attempt at a world record 2.10.
