One of the biggest shocks in Edmonton was provided by Germany’s Martin Buss. The 1999 bronze medallist had not bettered 2.30 outdoors since Seville, but in Edmonton he chose the perfect time to set a personal best of 2.36. He had failed once at 2.33 whereas Rybakov, Voronin and former champion Sotomayor went over the first time. Those three plus Buss and Holm all failed 2.36 on their first try, then the German surprised everyone by succeeding on the second (and his final) round.
Sotomayor’s fourth place marked the end of a long career, but after the championships it was revealed that he had failed a doping control test in July 2001. He later admitted to the offence, which resulted in a life ban as he had already served another suspension in 1999/2000. Consequently, his Edmonton performances were annulled.
