The Men's high jump event at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Daegu Stadium on August 30 and September 1.

It took a clean round up to 2.28 just to get into the final. In the final, seven competitors cleared 2.32, with only Jesse Williams and Trevor Barry maintaining a clean record. At 2.35, Williams maintained that clean streak, clearing on his first attempt, which ultimately won the gold medal. Only Aleksey Dmitrik was able to match that height, but it was on his second attempt as were all of his last three clearances in the competition.
