Overview by IAAF  2000_olympic_stadium.jpg
Vyacheslav Voronin, who had cleared 2.40 in August 2000, was favourite with previous champions Austin and Sotomayor well regarded as medal possibilities. Atlanta champion Austin only cleared 2.20 in the qualifying round, 7cm short of the required height. In the final 10 jumpers remained as the bar was moved up to 2.32. Voronin was the last to clear this height and placed 10th. As Klyugin was readying for his first attempt at 2.35 the heavens opened, and Klyugin was the only jumper to manage this height in the wet and windy conditions.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Favored was 1999 World Champion Vyacheslav Voronin (RUS) who had the best jump of the year (2.40 (7-10½)) and had won 14 of 20 meets in 2000. Defending champion Charles Austin was back and considered a medal contender. Also returning, and controversially, was Cuban super jumper Javier Sotomayor, the 1992 gold medalist. In 1999, Soto tested positive for cocaine at the Pan-American Games and was given a two-year suspension. But the IAAF reinstated him just before the Olympics, allowing him to compete. In the final seven jumpers got over 2.32 (7-7¼). But of those, only Russian Sergey Klyugin succeeded at 2.35 (7-8½) and that earned him the gold medal. Soto had no misses thru 2.32 (7-7¼) which earned him the silver medal.
