• German amputee Markus Rehm jumps 8.40m in Long jump to win IPC world championships gold

Article source: Athletics

German amputee Markus Rehm won the gold medal in the men's T44 long jump at the ongoing IPC world championships on Friday night  in Doha, Qatar.


 Rehm leaped 8.40 metres at the IPC World Championships in Doha, beating his previous world record by 11 centimetres. 

The German long jumper who also wants to compete at next year's Rio Olympics beat 2015 Beijing world champion's Greg Rutherford's mark by 9cm.

The track and field governing body (IAAF) will soon announce whether Rehm will be eligible to compete along side able-bodied athletes in Rio Olympics next year.

“I want to compete against able-bodied athletes, but I didn’t want to go in front of the courts,” Rehm said last year.

“I just want to bring the para-athletes and Olympic athletes a bit closer. I look at the world rankings, at how far they can go and how far I go, and that is definitely what I am looking for.” Rehm told media in Doha.
