SummaryEdit

The final started off with Shanieka Ricketts jumping 14.13 metres, which turned out to be her best. The second jumper Kristin Gierisch improved 3 centimeters to 14.16 metres then the fifth jumper, Olympic bronze medalist Olga Rypakova took the lead out to 14.45 metres. That lasted four more jumps until the young Venezuelan Olympic silver medalist Yulimar Rojas added 10 more centimeters to 14.55 metres which only lasted until the next athlete down the runway, gold medalist Colombian veteran Caterine Ibargüen added another dozen to 14.67 metres. The second round saw Rojas improve up to 14.82 metres, while Ibargüen only improved to 10.69 metres. The third round saw Rypakova jump past Ibargüen to 14.77 metres. Rojas improved a centimetre, then Ibargüen leaped past both of them back into the lead with a 14.89 metres. In the fifth round, Rojas edged ahead again with a 14.91 metres, but Ibargüen had two more attempts left. Her 14.88 metres final attempt didn't quite get there.

It was the same medalists as the Olympics, but a South American changing of the guard at the top. Rojas' was the first gold medal in the World Championships for Venezuela, only a day after Robeilys Peinado got their first medal ever.
