The qualifying height was 2.32, but only eight jumpers cleared 2.29, so a further four men with good countback at 2.25 were included. When the bar reached 2.32 in the final, only reigning champion Holm and Silnov had a perfect record. Both men went over 2.32 first time, but were preceded by the surprising Mason, a Jamaican transfer to Britain. He astounded onlookers by being the first over 2.34, and after Holm missed once, the Briton was joined by Silnov and Rybakov with first time clearances at 2.34. Silnov cleared 2.36 first time, and none of the others could get over that height, Holm, Spank and Bába all making desperation efforts at 2.36 without a 2.34 clearance. Silnov, the European Champion, had placed fourth in the Russian Championships, and was not initially selected for Beijing, but a 2.37 leap in London a week later convinced the Russian selectors to include him at the expense of Andrey Tereshin.
