Although the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team seemed to draw most of the attention for those following the Olympics live on Monday, American pole vaulter Jennifer Suhr upset a tough field to win gold in the event after clearing the 4.75 meter mark.
Russian star Yelena Isinbayeva was going for a third straight gold after winning the pole vault in 2004 and 2008, trying to become the first ever female to win an Olympic track and field event three times in a row, but finished with a bronze. World champion Fabiana Murer failed to clear the required height on Sunday and didn't earn a place in the final. Cuba's Yarisley Silva settled for the silver this year.
Suhr took silver in Beijing in the event and was clearly emotional as she walked around Olympic Stadium following her victory.
