Maria Lasitskene of Russia defended her world championship title with a 2.03-metre jump, winning the first gold medal for the so-called Russian neutrals, who were not representing their country after it was banned from the competition in the aftermath a major doping scandal.

Yuliia Levchenko came second with a personal best of 2.01 metres.

After nine days of competition, Poland has seven medals.

Gold medals were awarded to Anita Włodarczyk for the women's hammer throw and Paweł Fajdek won gold in the men's hammer throw.

Silver medals went to Adam Kszczot for the 800-metre race and Piotr Lisek for the pole vault.

Women's hammer throw and men's hammer throw bronze medals went to Malwina Kopron and Wojciech Nowicki, respectively, in addition to Lićwinko's bronze medal.
