MOSCOW 2013 Day 6: Bohdan Bondarenko sets NR, MR and WL of 2.41 meters, winning in Moscow, video from The Shoe Addicts

Bohdan Bondarenko, like Yelena Isinbayeva, woke up the crowd in Luzhniki stadium, with his brilliant jumping and his emotional celebrations. It is as if Bohdan is trying to reach for the stars-and he nearly made it! 

Setting a national record of 2.41 meters, which was also the meet record, and world leader, Bohdan Bondarenko became the high jump winner and the Shoe Addicts video focus for the Big Event on Day six! His attempts at 2.46 meters blew the crowd away! 

Fly Bohdan, Fly!
