The crowd was on its feet! First, Mutasz Essa Barshim cleared 2.42 meters by some centimeters! Then, less than four minutes later, Bohdan Bondarenko put his long, lean body over the bar, the place went nuts. When the announcer told the crowd of ten thousand that they had just witnessed history, it was, well, fantastic!
For Bohdan Bondaranenko and Mutasz Essa Barshim reaching for the stars, and clearing 2.42 meters, a first in athletics history, RunBlogRun gives them our Global Athletes of the month for June 2014!
