It was a night that saw many of the medal favorites bow out of competition early.
Reigning Olympic champion, American Jenn Suhr, who has been battling a virus during her time in Rio, found herself in a tight spot when she missed her first attempt at 4.60m. She bounced back and made it over, but was eventually eliminated when she was unable to make it over 4.70m.
Yarisley Silva, silver medalist in 2012 and the reigning world champion, also found herself off the podium when she was unable to clear the same height.
