Ukrainians Lavsky and Doroshchuk won medals in the high jump at the 2024 European Athletics Championships

Previously, a double podium in the same discipline was achieved by Maguchikh and Gerashchenko

Ukrainian athletes Vladislav Lavsky And Oleg Doroshchuk sensationally took two of the three places on the podium at the men’s final high jump on European Athletics Championships 2024.

Vladislav, who made it to the final of the adult European Championship for the first time in his career, was the only one who cleared the height of 2.29 meters on the first try. He was subsequently ahead of the Italian Gianmarco Tamberi, who cleared the bar at 2.37 m (a new European record). Doroshchuk had a result of 2.26 meters for a bronze medal.

For only the second time in history, Ukrainians scored a double podium in the high jump at the European Championship level. In 2014, Bogdan Bondarenko and Andrey Protsenko succeeded in doing the same (respectively, “gold” and “silver”).

Let us remind you that earlier at the 2024 European Championships, Yaroslava Maguchikh became the European champion in high jump, and Irina Gerashchenko took third place. In addition, Lyudmila Olyanovskaya won bronze in the 20-kilometer walk, and Mikhail Kokhan won bronze in the hammer throw. Thus, the Ukrainian team already has six medals at the tournament, which is taking place in Rome.
