The Russian made only two valid jumps. She leaped to a new personal best of 7.05m in her very first attempt, sealing the outcome of the competition! Klishina took off a mere 1cm from the plasticine. Darya fouled in the second and fourth rounds, but managed a relatively modest 6.54m and a high quality 6.71m in the third and fourth rounds, respectively. Her European arch-rival, Ivana Spanovic Ивана Шпановић or Serbia, won silver on count-back (6.74m). Klishina and Spanovic also placed 1-2 at the 2009 European Junior Championships.

Klishina bettered her erstwhile personal best of 7.03m set last year – as a junior!

Sosthene Taroum Moguenara (6.74m) of Germany narrowly lost the silver, while Poland’s Anna Jagaciak wound up fourth (6.62m).

The Russian stamped her class in the qualifying rounds, leaping to a massive 6.81m – a then season’s best for the rising star.
