Some minutes before on the long jump lane Marcell Lamont Jacobs astonished the field landing three times over the 8m mark, the best at 8.48m. This measure would have been a World Lead and a National Record, had the wind been legal. In fact the competitions have been hitten by strong wind gusts that invalidated all the jumps.

Jacobs some weeks ago has been protagonist in the 100m of Gavardo Meeting running a good 10″23, letting fans wander how far could he jump with that speed.
