This came after the decision of the International Olympic Committee today – Saturday – to withdraw the gold in the high jump from Russian Ivan Ukhov, after it was proven that he had used doping.
Under this decision, the American Eric Kennard, the silver holder, rose to the gold medal, to get the silver barshim instead of the bronze.
The Qatari Olympic champion of Sudanese origin succeeded in winning the high jump gold for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, which was held last summer, after it was postponed for a year due to the conditions of the Corona pandemic.
Barshim is the first Qatari in history to win 3 Olympic medals in 3 consecutive sessions, as he won the bronze in London 2012, which turned into silver, the silver in Rio de Janeiro 2016 in Brazil, and finally the gold in Tokyo.
