The Olympic stadium of Pontaise sounded empty. To attend the high jump competition of the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne (Switzerland), scheduled for Thursday, it was necessary to go to the central square on Wednesday, where a single pole vault competition was organized last year, replacing the meeting.

Russian Ilya Ivanyuk won by jumping 2.30 m in front of a few hundred spectators. He beat the American Shelby McEwen and the Ukrainian Andriy Protsenko (2.27 m). The Olympic co-champion, the Italian Gianmarco Tamberi, finished fifth (2.24 m).
