A record 10 men cleared 5.75 in the final. At 5.85, four were successful, excluding Seville silver medallist Markov who was nursing a stubbed toe. He saved himself for 5.90, and had he failed the Belarusborn Australian would have finished just 10th. He cleared first time, while Hysong, Stolle and Mesnil were eliminated. Only Averbukh was left to challenge Markov after saving his last two attempts for 5.95. Markov was over the first time while Averbukh went out. Then the 26 year-old produced arguably the finest performance of the Edmonton Championships by going over 6.05 on his second attempt.. This was not only a meeting record, but also the highest ever mark at any major championship. After his win, Markov gave three bottles of champagne to the doctors who had treated his injured toe for 13 hours prior to the final.
