Description:
Yelena Vladimirovna Slesarenko, née Sivushenko (, born February 28, 1982 in Volgograd) is a Russian high jumper.

Career

2004

Largely unknown before 2004, she kickstarted the season by clearing 2.04 metres and winning the World Indoor Championships. When the outdoor season started she won the SPAR European Cup with the same result, improving her personal best from 1.97 (achieved in 2002). She continued her good form at the 2004 Summer Olympics, winning the gold medal with a new national and personal record of 2.06 metres, beating Tamara Bykova's record set in 1984. After clearing 2.06 she made decent attempts at 2.10, which would have been a world record. She rounded off the season by winning the World Athletics Final.

2005

Injuries kept her away from most of the 2005 season, including the 2005 World Championships.

2006

Early in 2006, however, she won the World Indoor Championships with 2.02 metres. She finished fifth in the 2006 European Athletics Championships, failing to clear 2.00 m.

2007

2008

At the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, Slesarenko finished fourth in the women's high jump with a jump of 2.01 meters, failing to clear 2.03 meters after three tries.
