Erik Kynard Day 3 at 2016 IAAF World Indoor Champs

(filmed by Tim Jeffreys)

Erik Kynard ended up with the bronze, Robbie Grabbertz, GBR took the silver and Gianmarco Tambieri, the Italian jumper who frequently wears half a beard, won the gold medal. Here is a fun interview with Erik Kyndard after his high jump bronze medal!
