Overview by IAAF  
The top four athletes from the London Olympics filled the same positions in Moscow, but not in the same order. Up to 1.97, Barrett, Beitia and Chicherova held the lead, but at 2.00 this changed with first Barrett and then Shkolina making first-time clearances. None of the other jumpers could clear 2.00, though Chicherova was very near with her last attempt. The gold medal was settled two jumps later when Shkolina cleared 2.03 – her personal best – at her first attempt. In succeeding the deeply disappointed Chicherova as World Champion, Shkolina became just the second Russian to win gold since Tamara Bykova took the inaugural title in 1983. This statistic might need revising. Shkolina was named as one of 12 Russian athletes sanctioned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport in connection with the findings of the World Anti-Doping Agency-commissioned reports by Professor Richard H. McLaren and the related Evidentiary Disclosure Package. That was in February 2019, with the judgement being that she should be banned for four years from 2019, with the further annulment of results in 2012-2015. As at July 31, 2019, an appeal by Shkolina is ongoing. Therefore she is still regarded as the 2013 World Champion.
