Woo Sang-hyuk, who realized that exceeding 2m35m was meaningless, raised the bar to 2m37m, which is higher than his indoor Korean record (2m36), and tried twice, but unfortunately, the match was decided when he touched the bar.
Barshim, who is considered the best jumper in the sport, won his third gold medal in this competition, following Guangzhou in 2010 and Incheon in 2014.
