The 28-year-old added another gold medal to her big-event collection. She wrapped up her latest victory with a third-time clearance at 4.85 meters. Nikoleta Kyriakopoulou, 32, won silver with a 4.80 m jump. A third Greek athlete, Eleni-Klaoudia Polak, took part in the same event, but failed to clear 4.30 m.
