In the final race Shubenkov was second only to the Jamaican lobster Malouda, which showed the result 13,04. Shubenkov gave him 0.1 second and could not defend the world title won two years ago. The bronze went to the Hungarian Balasu Bazhi (13,28).
For Russians, this medal became the first in the world Cup, which takes place in London. Only the national team of Russia represented by 19 athletes, and while none of them managed to get into the top three.
Russian athletes perform at the world Cup in the neutral status of the athletes. Russia failed to put a team in the championship, as the all-Russian athletics Federation (vfla) has still not regained membership in the International Association of athletics federations (IAAF). Qualified for international tournaments were awarded to only those athletes who were able to prove their innocence to the doping system .
