The men's high jump at the 2013 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Luzhniki Stadium on 13–15 August.[1]

With 18 over 2.26 m (7 ft 434 in), it took a first attempt clearance and one miss to make it into the final.

In the final, three remained perfect to 2.35 m (7 ft 812 in), with Mutaz Essa Barshim just one miss behind, while Donald Thomas passed his personal best. But Barshim seized the lead with a first attempt clearance at 2.38 m (7 ft 912 in). Thomas and home team favorite Ivan Ukhov couldn't make the height, while Derek Drouin set a Canadian national record clearing on his second attempt. World leader Bohdan Bondarenko confidently passed the height knowing it would require him to equal his world leading jump from the previous month and to break Javier Sotomayor's championship record. On his second attempt at 2.41 m (7 ft 1034 in), he made it to take the lead. Drouin took his three attempts and settled for bronze. Already above his personal best, Barshim passed to 2.44 m (8 ft 0 in), 1 cm below the world record, to try for the win but couldn't get it. Bondarenko watched, then took three attempts at Sotomayor's world record.[2]
