FinalEdit

The final took place in the afternoon of 7 September. The weather was still bad and it rained during the competition. The track was wet which affected the performance.[3]

The British Marjorie Okell and Mary Milne couldn't jump above 1.50 metres.[4] After the German Helma Notte was not able to jump higher than 1.53 metres, there were two remaining competitors, the German Inge Braumüller and the Dutch Carolina Gisolf. Both Braumüller and Gisolf jumped 1.57 metres. Gisolf got injured during her successfull jump of 1.57 metres toring thigh muscle during the run. She tried to continue jump, to great encouragement from the crowd, but was not able to jump the 1.57 metres. Braumüller was also not able to jump the 1.57 metres.[5][6] The competition was decided by a toss, which was won in favor of the German.[3][5]
