Jenn Suhr of the United States won the gold medal in the women's pole vault on Monday, ending Russian Yelena Isinbayeva's bid for a third straight Olympic title.

Suhr won after clearing 4.75 meters at her second attempt, and missed every attempt at 4.80.

Yarisley Silva also cleared 4.75 on her second attempt for a Cuban national record, but lost on a countback and took silver.

Isinbayeva finished with bronze at 4.70. She had been aiming to be the first woman in track and field to win the same individual event in three straight Olympics.
