Sergey Bubka's Gold Medal & Olympic Record - Seoul 1988 Olympics



Footage from the 1988 Seoul Olympics in which Ukrainian Olympic legend Sergey Bubka claims Gold and breaks the Olympic record in the process in the Pole Vault.

In Seoul 1988, Bubka had his first opportunity to shine in the Olympic Games, having stayed out of Los Angeles four years earlier due to the Soviet Union boycott.

Representing the USSR in Seoul, Sergey Bubka broke the Olympic record with a 5.90m mark which also gave him the Olympic gold medal. His fellow Soviets Rodion Gataullin and Grigoriy Yegorov join him on the podium.

Bubka would still compete in the Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. He is currently a member of the International Olympic Committee.

  1. Как он прыгал! Уровень – Бог!!! Меня до сих пор чувство гордости за него на части рвет!!!

  2. Я конечно понимаю, Великий спортсмен, Легенда, но зачем же матом орать на весь стадион. НУ рекорд поставил, ну рад, доволен, Можно просто кричать, надо как-то держать себя в руках в 1988 году.

  3. You have to wonder how long he would have held his world record if the Soviet Union didn't pay each time it was broken. Perhaps instead of increasing his height by an extra couple millimeters each time he would have just said, "Set it at 6.6 meters" while still in his prime. A lot of people still don't realize Bubka was jumping easily a full foot higher than Mondo over 30 years ago and that's why he will always be the greatest of all time.
