Kazakhstan's Olga Rypakova produced a season's best leap to take gold in the women's triple jump final at the London Olympics on Sunday.
The 27-year-old former heptathlete and long jumper produced a mark of 14.98 metres to see off Caterine Ibarguen of Colombia and Ukraine's world and double European champion Olha Saladuha who took silver and bronze respectively.
Rypakova, who won silver at last year's world championships, set the winning mark with her third attempt, finishing the night 18 centimetres clear of Ibarguen. Rypakova's previous season's best was 14.84.
Ukraine's Saladuha, a strong favourite to take gold in London having produced four of the top 10 best jumps this year, looked to have catapulted herself into the medal places with her last jump of 14.79 that put her second.
But it was not to be as Ibarguen, who had occupied the silver medal position for most of the night, went one centimetre better to reclaim second and push Saladuha into bronz.
