The men's competition there was won by Bulgaria's Vladimir Zografski with jumps on 95 m and 94 m and a total of 248.8 points. "I did my best and I'm very happy about this Gold medal. I was a bit nervous after the first round, but I believed I could win and this belief was stronger", the winner told.

Ilmir Hazetdinov of Russia, with 90 m fifth after the first round, showed the best performance in the final with 94.5 m and moved up to second with 244.2 points. "This is my first Universiade I'm happy to be here. The second place is a success for me and I'm looking forward to the next competitions", Hazetdinov said.
