High jumper Woo Sang-hyuk finishes second in Monaco Diamond League – Chosun Ilbo : Daily News from Korea

High jumper Wu Sang-hyuk finished second behind the Qatari competitor at the World Athletics Diamond League event in Monaco on Wednesday.

Wu and Tokyo Olympic gold medalist Mutaz Essa Barshim finished in a two-way tie after clearing 2.3m in the men’s high jump final at Stade Louis II. However, during the jump-off, Qatar again cleared his 2.3 m, but Wu failed to do so, leaving the South Korean with the silver medal.

Still, a second-place finish added Woo seven points to their Diamond League standings, taking them to fourth overall with a total of 15 points.

The next league match will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland on 26 August.
