2012 Olympics: Ivan Ukhov Wins Gold In Men's High Jump, Erik Kynard Earns Silver

On Tuesday, Ivan Ukhov of Russia earned the gold medal in the Men's High Jump by being the only competitor capable of clearing the bar at a height of 2.38 meters.

Behind Ukhov was Toledo, Ohio native Erik Kynard representing the United States. Kynard led the event for much of the day prior to being unable to clear the 2.33 meter mark. However, the Ohio native's score was good enough to earn the silver medal and add to Team USA's growing medal count in Track & Field.

In addition, three competitors earned bronze medals for clearing the bar at a height of 2.29 meters, which included Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar, Derek Drouin of Canada and Robert Grabarz of Great Britain.
